Autumn Rinaldi

Autumn Rinaldi (28)

Autumn is a St. Louis native! Because she was homeschooled, Autumn has sadly never been able to participate when anyone asks the inevitable question: "Where did you go to high school?" Despite this impairment, she received degrees in Music (Voice) and Art at Lindenwood University, and has been a freelance photojournalist for several years. Autumn likes to blend aspects of art decor and fashion photography with journalism, and she loves to play with every imaginable style of creativity, photographing events such as, The Kevin Kline Awards, The St. Louis RAMS, Alive Magazine, and various boutiques and venues. For the last few years, she's also decided to tackle the writing profession, armed with a lot more wisdom and enjoyment than what her years of formal education left her!

Since 2009, Autumn has written three novels, two novellas and has been concentrating on short stories about ordinary people in situations out of their element. One of her shorts was recently published in the July edition of Bareback Literary Magazine, and she'll soon have a new work in The Rusty Nail Magazine. Although some people might describe this as unhealthily unfocused, she'd much rather be labeled as unhealthily curious.

When You are an Undiscovered Celebrity

Written by
I posted a blog recently about how famous authors have it made because the people in their life know how valuable they are, and thus are free to do whatever they want all day, finally saved from the torturous experience of having those two questions put to them again and again when one mentions…
When you think of St. Louis, many things come to mind. The St. Louis Cardinals, the Gateway Arch, the Mississippi River, and thin crust pizza. No doubt, famous names will pop up in your mind as well. Stan Musial, Chuck Berry, Josephine Baker, Jack Wagner, Kevin Kline, and Nelly. Many…

Adventures at St. Louis Earth Day

Written by
Ah, so Winter is finally gone and Spring is here! And pollen. And other allergy triggers that have been inhibiting me from looking like anything but one of those sickies in Mucinex commercials.
For those of you who have found yourself in the Midwest area during the Snowpocolypse of 2013, you fell into one of three categories. The Panic-er. You are the person who listens to your mom and the weather channel when they both insist we’ll all have to blaze our way…

A Night at the Kemper Museum

Written by
For the past couple of weeks, I have been a secret agent. Or actually like Lara Croft and Indiana Jones, without the big chest and whip. I’ve been mingling with important people, getting into hijinks with Nazis, exploring caves to uncover sacred and lost treasures.

Oh, The Weather Outside is...perfect for bodysurfing.

Written by
            Our weather has been taken hostage.             I saw a man coming out of a café* at the corner of Skinker and Forest Park Pkwy wearing nothing but jogging shorts. And not even the kind of jogging shorts you could call “wearing,” because in order to wear something, there…

Daylight Savings Time & Why It Should Be Stopped

Written by
Ah, daylight savings time, when we don’t know what our place in this world we are supposed to be. Originally developed with the idea that “early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise,” thus gave us extra daylight in the summer would make us more productive…

A November Challenge to Induce Envy Of Others

Written by
Ah, it’s the time of year when a sense of creepy looms. When hair stands up on your arms, and dread is amplified. Of course, I’m talking about NaNoWriMo! What else did you think I was talking about?

When you're not (gasp) a St. Louis Cardinals fan

Written by
I am not a sports person. So you should stop reading now. Because I will inevitably make you angry by the end of this post. But I am not into sports. At all. In fact, the only time I have EVER watched sports of any kind was when someone in…
