I'm a Southern girl who is a writer and lover of all things fringe and weird. That especially includes music and movies. I've written numerous articles on film that have been featured in Video Watchdog, Screem, Ultra Violent, Cinefear, Cultcuts, and many more. I've also written a number of weird short stories.
When I'm not writing, I love to spend time with my brilliant husband, Ziggy Thelonious Starkitty Roberts our cat and our two pet rats. Road trips, incense, thrift stores, sushi, photography, collage art, wine, chihuahuas and weird masks are all things that make me happy.

Glad you like the show! Have you had a chance to listen to both of them? Wow, and I thought I didn't have what it took to do a show on GaragePunk! Yes, the Fleshtones are my fave, and I'm going to see them in March! Doubt I'll get lucky and get pulled onstage again, though...
