Long time gamer of both video and TTRPGs (almost 30 years and yes I had the commodore vic 20 lol). Fell in love with RPGs in high school and fantasy books. Avid writer and TTRPG creator (or at least trying lol) .

I spend time with my grown kids and the grandkids. I do indulge in watching cooking channels and paranormal shows (Dead Files, Kindred spirits etc).

Do you have a current project that you would like us to promote?

I have worked with a dear friend on an Indie RPG Trin’Dar. Currently working on novel that revolves around Trin’Dar. Also working on stories involving the TTRPG I’m currently playing in.

How did you get into tabletop gaming?

My cousin and I found the boxed Advanced D&D and started playing, I was 16.

What do you love about tabletop games?

The community storytelling. Both DM and players working to create this story together. The chance to step away from life and do something creative.

Have you overcome any obstacles in tabletop gaming?

I have been very lucky with my groups to not have to deal with the stupidity of gatekeeping and the like. I’ve only had 1 experience when I started working with my friends company from another contributor who said I shouldn’t be the spokesperson of the company because I was a woman and wouldn’t be taken seriously despite the fact I had done all the research for publishing, artists and such.

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

Find a group you are comfortable with and don’t be afraid to ask the GM of the game what he allows at the table during game. And just have fun with whatever character you play.

In roleplaying games, what kind of characters are you drawn to play?

Magic casters (Wizards, clerics).
