I'm just this girl, y'know? Okay, it's not that simple, but the short of it boils down to almost thirty-something avid reader and would-be writer, who has been captivated by the genre for who knows how long. (Seriously, I've tried to figure out what got me, and while I've got a few guesses, I don't know for sure.) In the mundane world, I work for a small software company. It's not the most exciting job. I'm a graduate of UC Berkeley two times over, and am a diehard fan of that school's sports teams. I also root for the San Francisco Giants in baseball and the local Sacramento Kings in basketball. My personal website is retstak.org and my LJ can be found under the same username as here. Fiat Lux.
