The Writer: Romarin Demetri, author and creative force, is a story crafter who loves black coffee and traveling abroad. When her characters come home in some sort of trouble, Demetri swears she didn’t invent it. Pulling from her Bachelor of Arts in English and Psychology, her debut series, The Supernatural London Underground, is a blend of fantasy ground in reality and a world readers can truly escape to. As an eccentric and reader, she still enjoys creating the alternate reality in her urban fantasy series (more than anything!), and her interactive world waits for you at RomarinDemetri.com.
About Eccentrics: Eccentrics are the outliers, people who are overall altruists; idealists who are strangers to conformity. Comprising about 2% of the world’s population, we have more than enough hobbies each to make up for the rest of the census.
The Blog: This blog is about life (from the workplace to the weekend) and all of the things that can happen to a writer on her adventures through life, picking up inspiration in the strangest places. I like to think of it as a dream catcher!
Someday, sooner than later, this eccentric would like to focus research on the following topics:
Fear: Fear is the root of so many obstacles, and I think it is innate within us. It makes us generalize large groups of people without getting to know them, and is successful at dividing us as humans. Why are humans so quick to fear things and people that are different than them? Can we change the way we perceive fear in order to be happier and hurt both ourselves and others less?
Foster Care: Studying how we can improve safety, experiences, and resources for children who are and were formerly in the foster care system and don’t have the typical family structure. How can we make the foster care system into a better alternative for those who choose not to raise a child? How can we help former foster children to find resources once they are out of “the system” and left on their own?
Mental Health: It’s always on the mind of anyone who has studied Psychology. How can we make mental health services more available while we destigmatize the need for them and also reduce the need for medication? There are many people contributing to all of the above right now, and I hope to find the part of this that I am most passionate about.
Resilience: Studying how and why we can overcome circumstances given to us in ways that don’t hurt others. Is there a way we can enhance education to increase resilience? Why can some people cope better than others who are in the same situation? Does resilience come from within, or from a need to prove things to others?
The reality is that I will probably need a PHD to work on this research, so in the event that you support me as an author, you could be working towards one of these goals with me, and I thank you so much for that!
