Author has written 1 story for Neverwinter Nights.

I'm a British gamer who feels slightly silly about being such a fangirl, it since I consider myself far too old for that sort of thing. I live in a big city with a husband who is tolerant of my obsessions and an overly noisy cat. I make shiny things to earn money but my heart really isn't in it any more, which I guess is a pitfall of making your hobby into your job sometimes. As for activities I don't earn a living from, in recent times I've taken up morris dancing (surprisingly fun to do, and good for building confidence - it requires quite a lot of front to dance in the street in a bizarre costume) and am learning a musical instrument. All of which leaves less time for gaming or writing, though I seem to be getting the urge to do the latter at present.

Current gaming habits when I get the chance - mostly crappy hidden object games, which don't really count. If anyone complains about storytelling in Bioware games, just play one of those and find out the true depths a game plot can plunge to. I guess that makes me one of those filthy casual gamers. I've also rather belatedly started The Witcher 3 - now that's good storytelling which extends to minor side plots, even if it can be relentlessly bleak at times.
