MELISSA RUSSELL is a game developer and aspiring writer from Seattle, Washington. Her professional resume consists of "Electronics Department Associate," "Chipper Telemarketer," "External Cohort," and "Lightbringer".

Proud gamer and self proclaimed geek, she can be found roaming around comic and anime conventions, masquerading as anything from a Mandalorian Mercenary to a storytelling dwarf. When she's not leading the FemShep Crusade, she's probably out shilling away for G33kwatch and/or events benefiting Child's Play Charity.

She lives with her Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Arsene, and a chaos space marine she married along the way.
