A trailblazer and student of Afrofuturism Octavia Butler wrote science fiction novels about future societies and superhuman powers.
She wrote through the lens of black female characters and brought a new voice and perspective to science fiction.
Her writing style was a unique combination of slave narratives, stories and rituals, fantasy, folklore, science fiction, and spirituality.
A believer in personal affirmations, she wrote down what she believed and spoke them aloud, “So be it! See to it!”
Like fantasy vs reality, the sweet lightness of Pink Pomelo with Lemon, Raspberry, green apple and cotton candy meets calming, mellow Cedarwood and Sandalwood to create an intoxicating fragrance that smells like a warm breeze.
I have a huge and savage conscience that won't let me get away with things.
