Regina is a gamer, writer, teacher, and podcaster living in the Pacific Northwest. She completed her Ph.D. in 2011 from Washington State University in Vancouver and continues to teach there part time. Regina’s research interests focus on women and technology, and her dissertation discusses female gamers and identity in digital role playing games. A lifelong geek and technology enthusiast, Regina recently started a Girls Who Code club in support of their mission to close the gender gap in technology.

To continue the conversations about gender and gaming that Regina started during her research, she started a podcast called Game on Girl. Called the “NPR of game podcasts” by Chris Brown of The Married Gamers, the podcast features women involved in the game industry, and tackles some of the complicated issues in the gaming community. Season 2 began in the spring of 2018 and will premiere new episodes monthly.

  1. Elianara:
    I hadn't heard of The Bride Quartet. Thanks for mentioning it. It sound interesting although I have to say I don't have much interest in Romance since I'm kind of living a perfect one. (Ahhh.) I like the premise, though, from the perspective of a wedding planning business.

    I was obsessed with the puzzle books while traveling. I bought another one after I arrived at my destination. I'm horrible at crosswords so you've thoroughly impressed me.

    Game on.

  2. Reading and watching: Went and saw The Maze Runner, and got interested, so next up I'm reading the books by James Dashner, but they have to wait a bit, because I'm in the middle of Nora Roberts Bride Quartet series.

    Also went to the movies and saw The Mockingjay part 1.

    And since you commented on puzzle books, I have to say I like them too, I have a monthly subscription to a Japanese crossword, or nonogram magazine, that I like to fill in. I like to do puzzles, and those are my favorites so far.

    Happy puzzle solving!
