Hello and welcome to my site!
I spend a lot of time at the keyboard worldbuilding, socializing, and fan girling. I also do a lot of reading, indulging in severe caffeine and chocolate addictions, and going to the gym. Okay, wait ... I don't spend a lot of time at the gym. I do go ... occasionally ... and need to get there far more often. My goal is to wipe that last sentence off this bio and just state that I go to the gym often. Anyway, I live in New Jersey with my podcaster husband (you can find his entertainment podcast here), my film-obsessed son (who I refer to as "Spielberg boy" or SB on the blog), book-munching daughter (known as "Energizer Bunny Girl" or EBG), and a self-absorbed parakeet named Weasley (yes, after the Harry Potter Weasleys. We had Dobby, too, but he, unfortunately, met the same fate as his namesake.) Together, we're a proud entertainment geek family.
