Writer, fangirl, and cat-enthusiast. My work has appeared on The Mary Sue, The Portland Review, and other websites. I write lists for Ranker and cover Star Wars Rebels and BBC content for Pure Fandom. My favorite show growing up was Xena -- I have tried to emulate the Warrior Princess in every way (see current hairstyle).
