And the dice tell me… *peers at them* Nothing! (Okay okay a mutation of a line from Willow – couldn’t help it 😀 )

The dice really tell me that we’re proud to introduce another of our Hydra Games writers – Shawna Romkey!

Shawna grew up in around farms in the heart of Missouri but went to the University of Kansas, was raised in the US but now lives on the ocean in Nova Scotia with her husband, two sons, two rescue dogs and one overgrown puppy from hell. She’s a non-conformist who follows her heart.

She has her BA in creative writing from the University of Kansas where one of her plays was chosen by her creative writing professor to be produced locally, and two of her short stories were published in a university creative arts handbook. She earned her MA in English from Central Missouri State University where she wrote a novel as her thesis.
She’s taught English at the university and secondary levels for close to twenty years and can’t quite fathom how all of her students have grown up, yet she’s managed to stay the same. She’s a huge geek and gamer, having played since AD&D 2nd edition, and she still plays and runs a weekly Pathfinder game. She’s a fan of Xena, Buffy and all kick ass women, and loves to write stories that have strong female characters.
Her debut novel, Speak of the Devil, launches March 2013 with Crescent Moon Press.
