Geek, Gadgets and Cars

Once a writer, always a writer, but we all have to start somewhere and for me that start was writing my own blog, Total Fan Girl, which covers all the wonderfully geeky things I adore. It might be the latest movie or television show that I've fallen in love with, or it could be one that puts me to sleep. The Hobbit, I'm looking at you.

One thing led to another and I started writing for other geeky sites. I've written fiction, too, in the form of an adventure called Freedom Flyer for the Firefly: Echoes of War role-playing game. The chance to play with Joss Whedon's beloved Firefly characters was a dream, even if it did leave me talkin' like a cowboy for darn near a month.

You'll also find me writing about cars. A lot. That's because I've always loved cars and the fact that they regularly hand me the keys to shiny new automobiles so I can write about them still amazes me. I cover news, write and film video reviews, and attend auto shows and new vehicle launches across the country. 

I'm a regular contributor of automotive content at The Boston Globe,, AutobytelBestRide, and CarGurus. I have also contributed to U.S. News and World Report, AAA, ZipCar, and numerous lifestyle blogs seeking automotive coverage.

I sneak in a little podcasting in all my spare time when I'm not writing, writing, writing. My regular gig is a segment on The D6 Generation gaming podcast called Total Fan Girl.
