I write, draw a little, sew a lot, I make jewellery, cosplay, I love anything creative really.

Currently most of my time is taken up with writing, cosplay and making plushies.

How did you get into tabletop gaming?

My friend watched Critical Role and was like “you have to watch this show and we have to play this game”, so I started doing both.

What do you love about tabletop games?

Creating characters, working out what makes them tick and really getting to explore them in a way that’s more immediate than writing them.

Have you overcome any obstacles in tabletop gaming?

I only play with my group of friends because I have heard enough bad stories to put me off trying with anyone I don’t know well.

What would your advice be to women who are interested in tabletop gaming?

Get a few friends together and try it out. Also character creation is a lot less confusing than it looks, just read the book carefully and don’t worry if you get something wrong.

What kind of characters are you drawn to play?

I tend to play characters with a lot of secrets and issues cos it’s just more fun.

Is there a woman in tabletop who you think we should highlight?

Marisha Ray. She’s just so cool and tough I totally look up to her.
