Who is Amethyst Saw?

Amethyst Saw, my quirky creative narrative, is curated by Adaeze Feyisayo Samuel. Amethyst Saw has been her pen name for over a decade and it means ‘to heal with reading’. In ancient times Amethyst, a purple gemstone was put in wine given to injured soldiers. It was believed to quicken their healing. Amethyst is a creative writer who loves reading and book blogs. She believes literature gives us adventure to find ourselves. On days she’s not resisting her chocolate and ponmo addictions. Amethyst is reading, photographing books and nature, talking about literature and life. Or honestly, doing all three.

  1. Hi Amethyst!

    Your blog is quite interesting and I have subscribed. I am a passionate reader/viewer of fiction. Would you be interested in participating in a Ph.D. dissertation research project on the transformative influence of fiction? I am a Ph.D. candidate in psychology with a concentration in transpersonal psychology at Sofia University. I am in particular need of people of color as participants. I can send more information about myself and the project. Please let me know. Thanks.

    1. Hey, Caryn. I appreciate your interest. I live in Lagos, Nigeria. My email address is listed on my Contact page. I am interested in participating in your research. Email me. All the best.


      1. Hi Adaeze,

        We did connect at that time and you were very busy with a project. However, I am still in need of participants and would certainly welcome interviewing you if you are now available. Thanks. Caryn
