indie author

Hello, everyone! Yes, Game on Girl is back! This month I have a great interview with indie author, Trish Heinrich. About Trish Trish is an indie author I had the pleasure of being on a panel with at last year’s GeekGirlCon. During our Geeky Moms panel, it was clear that Trish was articulate, engaging, and thoughtful person. I had no idea she was also a “WoW Head” and a serious gamer. We had a great conversation talking about her evolution into being a superhero writer. We also talked about our love of all things Wonder Woman and an aversion we both have to reading comicRead More →

Greetings Geeks and welcome to another episode of Game on Girl! My apologies for the lag in episode releases for Game on Girl. I came back with the best of intentions for monthly content on our podcast feed but as my favorite poet says, “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.” That’s certainly how the last few months have gone for me. But I am back with a fantastic LIVE episode interviewing Jaimie Cordero from Espionage Cosmetics. We met up at Rose City Comic Con on September 8th. I attended Jaimie’s panel, Level Up: Be a Nerd Boss on Friday ofRead More →

gamer types

In the first episode of season two of Game on Girl, Isabela and I discussed the gamer types that I used in my dissertation research. The gamer types were a significant part of the research I did and shaped the foundation of the podcast. In bringing back the show, it is important to clearly define them for our new discussions. As I revisited the gamer types in preparation for relaunching the show, I realized I wanted to add a new category to the types. Social gamers, I thought, were primarily interested in gaming for the social interactions, for the personal connections games can bring toRead More →
