Piper Joelle Albus, writing as Sadie Whitecoat, was born in Regina, Saskatchewan. In the early years others observed her eccentric style and shy personality. In high school she excelled in art and was chosen to be enrolled for International Bachelorette program, something she found to be enjoyable until she discontinued school to focus on herself after some unfortunate events took place and very well changed her whole life.
Known as ‘Pipez’ by friends and acquaintances, Pipez has renamed herself many times and developed each of her sides just like characters- Each one of them totally obsessed with writing dark poetry.
Known in her published work as Ms. ‘Sadie Whitecoat’, her first born alias, that the Manson family inspired her to choose, since a young age she deemed herself a ‘Manson Girl’ and dreamt of their old way of life. So she became Sadie, and it brought some peace inside.
Please welcome Sadie Whitecoat to Roadie Notes…….
1. How old were you when you first wrote your first poem?
I was 16 years old when I wrote my first poem, it was shortly after I had dropped out of high school. That poem is the very first one in my first book- Insights to Evil Insides.
2. How many books have you written?
I have written two full poetry collections along with one short story.
‘Insights to Evil Insides’ is the first to gain publication with Hellbound Books. The second Is titled ‘Blood on The Brain’- I am still looking into publication for that one as I have recently finished it. My short story is a dark, emo sci-fi fiction titled- The Blue Colony.
3. Anything you won’t write about?
No. I think that it is very clear to those who read my writing- nothing is off-limits. I aim to disturb, even just a little.
4. Tell me about you. Age (if you don’t mind answering), married, kids, do you have another job etc…
I’m 20 years old and I’m living in Saskatchewan, Canada. I’m not married, and I have no children. I have a job as a
security guard, but don’t work often due to disability. My disability being mental ailments such as anxiety, depression, and other symptoms of Borderline Personality disorder.
5. What’s your favorite book you have written?
Honestly, ‘Blood On The Brain’. I have grown so much as a writer since ‘Insights to Evil Insides’. I love them both but I really am very excited about the second one, as I have just completed it and am waiting to see if it is wanted. The waiting game is always the hardest part- I know it is worth signing but others have to read and decide for themselves.
6. Who or what inspired you to write?
Pain and experiences that made me who I am today. I started writing after I dropped out of high school and it became my main focus apart from bad habits. The people who inspired me are- Cranford Nix, Lydia Lunch, and Charles Manson. Cranford Nix was a musician that I relate a lot to, who died very early. Lydia Lunch is probably my idol and she is a reporter, musician, artist, and total bad-ass. I hope to one day be something just like her. Charles Manson inspired me in high school and I dream of the way of life that would have existed within the Manson family. I do not agree with murder, and that is not the part of the family I feel part of.
7. What do you like to do for fun?
Like most writers- I like to drink and smoke. I like to be outside when I can, and I make dark art as well. I am pretty well a loner in most of my time, because it is easier on me, mentally. I also write poetry for fun, and play guitar and ukulele. I also practice as a witch and enjoy Satanism.
8. Any traditions you do when you finish a book?
Not yet, but maybe I will start a tradition when I finish my next.
9. Where do you write? Quiet or music?
I write usually in my basement room and it has to be silent. I can’t listen to music that contains words while I am writing, because it all gets mixed up with what is in my head.
10. Anything you would change about your writing?
No. I pride myself in writing the things others would not dare to admit or acknowledge. I voice the unclaimed frustrations of the world.
11. What is your dream? Famous writer?
Yes. I plan to be very famous.
12. Where do you live?
I currently live in my parent’s basement in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada.
I have a dog named DJ Jinja $nap, a cat named Cid, and another cat named Jack.
14. What’s your favourite thing about writing?
I can say whatever I want and nobody can make me answer for it, or explain.
15. What is coming next for you?
After I release ‘Insights to Evil Insides on the world, hopefully- I will receive another contract and ‘Blood On The Brain’ will gain publication, too.
16. Where do you get your ideas?
From experiences and emotions within myself. I’m not going to comment on how much is fact vs. how much of it is fiction. It’s art and that’s the only explanation I will offer.
17. What do you hope your first book will bring?
Peace and validation. I also hope that people who can relate to my poems, will read it and feel less alone.
18. Who should read your book?
I think everybody should read it but it will be hard to discuss with people who have known me in real life or are related to me, as it is very dark and heavy content.
