Jessica Powell (@jehzavere on Twitter) has interviewed me for her latest column on Luna Station Quarterly! She asks me about my experience as a woman gamemaster, what advice I have for women looking to get a job in the gaming industry, how to become a gamemaster yourself if you come from more of a writing background, and much more!

Thank you Jessica for the opportunity to be interviewed, and I hope my responses are helpful for women who are interested in getting into gamemastering or game design!
