Miss RobertsI am Miss Roberts, queen of the Rude Mechanicals – a swamp rock band – and the director of  The Library of Obscure Wonders.

I have a rare brain condition, I think of it as a large alien living in there, which causes me to have hallucinations and intense experiences which I can only describe as Gods. All this has medical terms of course – a very large AVM and uncontrollable temporal lobe epilepsy – but it is also how I am and although the experiences it gives me have been horrific and it can make things exceedingly difficult, it can also make life very much there, wondrous and valuable.

Life is a strange and amazing thing, I haven’t quite got used to it yet.

Here is a pic of the monster in my brain, it is the black swiggly mess on the right behind the eye (which is actually the left..)
