Fandom IS Universal

When I speak at schools, libraries, conventions and so on, I feel it is important to talk about my multi-ethnic upbringing. Coming from two drastically different cultures and being a geek on top of that wasn’t always the easiest thing as a kid or a fan. And seeing myself represented in fandoms was often difficult…

Kollision Con Highlights

Just got back in from Kollision Con in Rosemont, Illinois. I joined guests such as Robert Axelrod, Paul St. Peter, Trevor Mueller, and oh-so-many more! Gotta say, I had quite the blast. Felt like I was just hanging out with friends all weekend. Got picked up from the airport by an adorable dude by the…

Tokyo In Tulsa 2014 Highlights

Can you believe the folks at Tokyo in Tulsa were crazy enough to ask me back? Well, I guess you know the answer to that since you’re reading this post…. Moving on. This year I was accompanied by Cherami Leigh, Stephen Radney-Macfarland, Cynthia Cranz, Jeremy Inman, DJ Imza, Wendy Powell, FEMM, Peter Pixie, The Chalk…

Tsukino-Con/Victoria Highlights

Apologies for the lack of bloggity bloggy-ness, ladies and jellyspoons. Production of my latest audiobook, Wings of Thunder, had a delay in December due to a plague (major cold) that hit many VO peeps including yours truly. I’ve been playing catch-up ever since. Now that post-production is complete, it’s time to make up for lost…

Haber-Kon Highlights

Did you know that my super talented husband started out doing live sound? Don’t answer that, I know you did. I don’t shut up about it. Though Stephen isn’t live sound guy anymore, he does still work live events from time to time. Todd Haberkorn approached Stephen about running sound for his band at Haber-Kon….

Bakurestu Con 2013 Highlights

The folks behind Bakuretsu Con were crazy enough to ask me back. I said yes, of course. Other guests included David Williams, Scott Melzer, Matthew Myers, and Stephen Hoff. That’s right, the husband was able to join me in Vermont! The two of us don’t get to do that many conventions together. More cons should invite audio…

AnimeFest 2013 Highlights

AnimeFest was my third convention of August (hooray for sleep deprivation). I’d been a guest in 2011 and was excited to be asked back. AFest is probably one of the bigger cons that I’ve gotten to go to and it just so happens to be in downtown Dallas (only minutes away from mi casa). Since my…

SaikouCon 2013 Highlights

Another convention? So soon? Tis true, good people of the internet. Last weekend, I went to Breinigsville, Pennsylvania for the first year of SaikouCon! Guests included: Darrel Guilbeau, Jād Saxton, Jessie Pridemore, Greg Houser, Bill Rogers, The D20 Girls, The Slants, and many more! I brought Eyes of Lightning bookmarks & Deadman Wonderland cards for autographs (’cause, as…

TnT 2013 Highlights

Spent last weekend in Tulsa, Oklahoma. That’s right, I was lucky enough to be a guest at Tokyo in Tulsa! Day 1 I’m always nervous when trying out new panels, especially if I’m flying solo. I’ve found that walking around is better than sitting. Perhaps that’s because of my background in standup comedy. The conversation…
