About the Author

“I believe in the force, the prime directive, the glowing red spine of a Cylon’s back, the dharma initiative, the double tap, the multipass, and that the fourth Indiana Jones movie was self-indulgent overrated crap. I believe that Han shot first. I believe there oughtta be a constitutional amendment outlawing canceling sci-fi shows with only one season. I believe if you walk without rhythm, you won’t attract the worm. I believe in the TARDIS and the Delorian, buying your comics on Wednesday, that vampires think Halloween is too commercial, and I believe that nuking the site from orbit is the only way to be sure because you can’t stop the signal.”

kathy-avatar-photo-background-4Kathy originally hails from Chicago but has journeyed toward the sea and settled in the Pacific Northwest. By day, she is a project coordinator for a Fortune 500 company that does math for a living. By night, she levels up her fandom knowledge through reading, watching, surfing the internet, and creating things that interest her (which would involve not math) so she can bring recommendations to you..

Outside of this blog, you can find her on Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr, Instagram, Google+, LinkedIn, IMDB, YouTube, and Goodreads. You can also email her: kathy@questinggeek.com. There is also an official Facebook Page for the blog.

If you are wondering what my geek/nerd street cred is, you can check out this article on Mental Floss.com where I was featured (about halfway down in front of an open Tandy computer): Our Readers Are Nerds! (We Have Proof)
