She writes 54th Games victor Arbor Halt, 80th tribute Lex Lionel, and in the Retro Games timeline, Adder Ames, 1st Games victor. When she's not writing or making computers do her bidding, she enjoys cooking, sad music, children's cartoons, woodworking, and playing guitar.

When she isn't writing, she can probably be found unhinging her jaw to eat all of the food, wondering what in the world people mean when they say things like "too much butter" or "I'm not a cat person," getting way too emotional over children's cartoons, and silently smiling when asked if she's a witch. She lives in New England with her fiancée Aya and their goodest floof-a-poof-familiar Murphy.tris
