She is a big ole nerd when it comes to sci-fi and fantasy stories, her favorite TV shows being Battlestar Galactica, Game of Thrones (not you, Season 8), and House of the Dragon. She is a fierce defender of Star Wars: Episode II — The Attack of the Clones. A lover and devotee to all of Wong Kar-Wai's filmography, especially 2046. She is an avid reader of romance novels and an amateur astrologist (emphasis on the amateur).
When she's not behind the keyboard typing away, she is travelling around the world, doing some yoga by the beach, weight lifting, and/or playing video games. She has written for The Beat and Nerdophiles, hosted the Matrix 404 podcast, and has appeared on several other podcasts.

"What's the quality of life with no skin?"
