November 22, 2013: I see the need for a big editing of my Aulden ebooks. I may delete many of the chapters. If you download the current version, you can have access to both "before and after." Hope to post the rewrite by August. My two day jobs push my writing to th back burner.
My ebook series, The Fairytale Life of Aulden Schlief, is written from Jungian active imagination therapy sessions and archetypal work.
I've been called an outsider artist, a Jungian and a pseudo-Jungian. I like all those labels even if it's all just persona. As an intuitive introvert, I'm reclusive and happiest alone working on creative projects.
I come out of my shell occasionally to do public readings. Some venues where I've read include these:
- The People's Poetry Gathering, Lower Manhattan
- The National Cowboy Poetry Gathering, Elko, NV
- The Adelaide Fringe Festival, Australia
- The international Finn Fest
- The Impala, Los Angeles
A video clip from a reading can be found by searching YouTube with words "Aulden Shlief." (The person who posted it mis-spelled Aulden's last name!)

I like history, especially personal history, and this was a cute little story. Keepsakes have become a lost art...it seems family treasures end up in pawn shops more these days than in a lock box.
