Not only that, when she's not learning, she works tirelessly as web admin for her self-hosted blog network of Wordpress sites and manages all the editorial duties of all the sites she's developed. She's often said that ideas for new sites keep coming to her. She was an affiliate marketer for a number of years but had to drop that title so she could spend more time working on her own projects. When she's not busy growing her blog empire, she's working on her published writing endeavors. She resides in the Philadelphia Metro area with her partner. In her spare time, she's an avid anime and manga fan, a lover of M/M romance as she both reads and writes stories, a techno-geek, card-carrying member of the Cult of Mac/Apple, book worm and movie buff. It's safe to say, that she doesn't get out much.
