I grew up eating a lot of food. Growing up in the North, my mom made almost all of my food. She cooked it, she baked it, and she even got her hands dirty in the kitchen.
This was no surprise to me, but I didn’t expect her to teach me to cook. Although I’m sure she did it to make me feel like I was a good cook, it certainly wasn’t to teach me how to cook. She was a chef.
This makes me wonder why she didnt change that. Cooking is not just about cooking food. It’s about learning about food, and I think a lot of people who cook are taught cooking because they dont know what else to do. Or perhaps it’s just that she didnt have any other hobbies.
I dont know. I think I have a few hobbies though. I was a piano student for a little while. I have a few other hobbies that I think I could take up. Like I said Im not sure why she didnt do all those things. I think it was important for her to get a job and get out from the house and see the world because what Ive seen of her is that she has no interest in the world outside the house.
alexis cooper is the protagonist of a series of novels, comics, and short stories by author Alexandra Cooper. Her books are written primarily in the form of short stories, but she has also written novels with longer narratives, such as The Time Loopers (which takes place over a year long) and The Last Chance Brothers (which takes place over a year long). A self-described “lunatic”, Cooper is also the author of several science fiction, fantasy, and horror novels.
That’s a pretty wild list, so let’s talk about her short stories. A short story collection, The Blue Key was released in 2016 and features stories written by Cooper between 2010 and 2013. The stories range in length from one page to over 200 pages, which she says is a good thing because a short story is easily digestible.
Cooper writes short stories, and while the majority of them are not that short, they do span a variety of genres from horror to science fiction to fantasy. She says, “I write short stories that are generally on the shorter side, and that’s because I try to keep them short enough to fit in in the book, but that I don’t feel like an endless story. I try to make sure that the reader can get through a couple paragraphs or so.
She says she writes in the style of short stories, and while she does write a lot of short stories, the bulk of her work is very long. Her goal is to make a short story that the reader can hold in their hands for a few hours.
That’s true, but as she tells us, that’s not the most important thing. The most important thing is that she likes to write and that she’s fun to be around.
I think that the biggest challenge for Cooper is that she writes a lot of long, difficult stories. In fact, I think I’ve read all of her stories in the past week.
