Author has written 3 stories for Mass Effect, and Fallout.

Hello all! I'm Sindrandi, goddess of all that sparkles. I am an avid reader, gamer, knitter, quilter, backpacker, snowboarder, gardener, and budding writer. I am happily married to my best friend, have two awesome dog-children, and live in the Colorado Rockies. I love all things Oblivion, Fallout, and Mass Effect, which is the direction I am usually pulled to write. I just think those games have such a rich tapestry of characters and stories that are just begging to be explored.
