This subject turned out to be far more broad than I originally believed it would be. The submissions I received varied a great deal and, admittedly, some did not match the theme at all. Amidst the sea of stories, I found myself drawn to those whose concept of “home” differed from the norm. They weren’t tales of happy families in pretty homes. They were stories of dysfunctional people sharing a space. Of futures where money means nothing or minds and phones are linked. Of dragons and monsters.
An abstract concept of “home”, that is what readers can expect in the Fiction section of borrowed solace’s third issue.

Amber Porter was born in Fort Carson, Colorado and has recently finished her bachelor’s in Psychology—with a minor in creative writing—from the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs. She loves writing, particularly: horror, fantasy, young adult, and humor and has a fascination with the darker and stranger side of life, it’s probably why she wanted to be a psychologist—to probe into the deepest most secluded areas of one’s psyche. Amber also enjoys learning about new cultures, particularly their languages, and hopes to one-day return to Italy where she spent several years of her childhood. As a side-note, she’s rather fond of video games—especially those with good characters and story—and getting lots and lots of sleep.
