Kick-Ass creative ladies!

With this blog and my books, over the past three years I have carved out a little piece of the interwebs that I can call my own. I can create content (slowly, I know but writing books takes time) and talk about my two loves – geekdom and travel. While I’ve been doing this I’ve […]

Another Tick Off the List (otherwise known as The Day I met Nathan Fillion!)

A few months ago I found out that Malcolm Reynolds/Captain Hammer/Richard Castle/Captain TightPants himself AKA Nathan Fillion was going to be appearing at Comic Con Germany in Stuttgart. Before The List, I would have sighed, wished I could have been there and then tried to forget about it. But that was before I had set […]
