When she was 21, she moved to Vancouver with dreams of being a rock star, graduating from the University of British Columbia with a degree in Writing and Psychology. For the next few years she played in an alternative/punk band called Missing Mile before moving to England where she received her MA from the prestigious Creative Writing graduate course at Bath Spa University. Jeyn is a former singer, songwriter, actress, bicycle courier and tree planter.

Welcome Jeyn!

Day in the Life of Aries

Woke up early today. Everyone was still sleeping. Clementine was snoring but not very loud. It’s maybe the sound that a mouse might make if they had a stuffy nose. Kinda cute. No wonder Michael looks at her the way he does.

Breakfast was an oatmeal bar and a juice box. Not really the breakfast of champions. Colin’s been hoarding the instant coffee packs from Starbucks. I’m pretty sure he keeps them under his mattress. Will have to try and hit up a coffee shop later today. Everyone gets a little cranky without their caffeine.

Joy told me that we’re almost out of propane too. Talked to Mason about it and he said he’d go down to Canadian Tire with Nathan and pick up some canisters. The last time we were there, it had been looted pretty bad. If only we had more people, we could carry it all away and store it in the garage. But we were on our bicycles so we hid some of the propane over in the automotive section. Mason figures no one is going to steal the All Weather Tires and windshield wipers. He’s got a good point.  So we hid all the good stuff there and hopefully it’ll still be there when they go down today to retrieve it.

Asked Colin if he wanted to go with me to pick up some food supplies and his response was typical. So Clementine, Michael and I decided to head over to the Safeway and try and get some decent stuff. It’s getting harder to find food. Most of the shops have been heavily looted but Michael says it should be worse. The Baggers attacked quickly, people didn’t really get a chance to stock up. We haven’t started raiding houses yet. No one really wants to do that yet and we hope it doesn’t come down to that. The thought of breaking windows to go through cupboards seems like such a violation of privacy. There are still plenty of shops around that we haven’t tried yet. Going through people’s homes, that just seems too personal. But we keep having to travel further every day to find necessary items.

I wonder if anyone has gone through my parent’s house yet. I’d hate to imagine people going through my closets. Brrr. Creepy.

We lucked out at the Starbucks tho. Clementine went into the back and found boxes of both instant and regular coffee. Instant is easier but it doesn’t taste as good. We have a little percolator that we can use on the propane stove but coffee cans are heavy and harder to transport. This is why we’ve stuck to those little instant packages.

I miss having mochas. What I wouldn’t give for a bit of milk. And cheese. I miss cheese so much! And ice cream. I could go on all day about the foods that I miss.

But we weren’t so lucky at Safeway. The Baggers were inside, going through the pharmacy from the looks of things. One of them brought out a shopping cart full of medicine and Red Bull drinks. Go figure. They were piling everything into one of those white vans they’re so fond of.

 There wasn’t much to do afterwards. We headed for home. There’s still a couple of cans of condensed mushroom soup and some tuna. Joy said she would whip something up with that. We’ll try again tomorrow.

Mason went out shortly after dusk tonight. He won’t say where he’s going every night and gets a little defensive if I ask. I can’t complain. I’m not so innocent in that department either. Clementine says Mason watches me when he thinks no one else is looking. I’m pretty sure she’s making that up. Mason doesn’t seem to like anyone but he does talk to me more than the others. I wonder.

Once everyone goes to sleep I’ll sneak out the window and head down to the beach. I wonder if Daniel will be there tonight? He keeps saying that one of these days he’ll be gone. Would he really leave me like that? I can’t imagine this world without him.

One winner will receive an autographed copy of Dark Inside by Jeyn Roberts

Available on November 1, 2011 from Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing

About the Book:

Since the beginning of mankind, civilizations have fallen: the Romans, the Greeks, the Aztecs… and now us. Huge earthquakes rock the world. Cities are destroyed. But something even more awful is happening: An ancient evil has been unleashed, and it’s turning everyday people into hunters, killers, and crazies.

This is the world Mason, Aries, Clementine, and Michael are living in—or rather, trying to survive. Each is fleeing unspeakable horror, from murderous chaos to brutal natural disasters, and each is traveling the same road in a world gone mad.

Amid the throes of the apocalypse and clinging to love and meaning wherever it can be found, these four teens are on a journey into the heart of darkness—and to find each other and a place of safety.

    That’s a harder question than picking one book, because I don’t actually listen to music a lot. I’ll have to go with Sarah Brightman’s Symphony.

    30 Seconds to Mars is a really good one, but I think I would have to side with Paramore’s Final Riot live album. Great songs to kick butt to and to chill out with.

    I’m going to go with any Ingrid Michaelson album. Her music can be both happy and sad depending on your mood and if it was the end of the world, that’s something I’d certainly need.
