A bit of self-promotion: Chicago Magazine Article The Queen of Games


A good friend of mine in the industry is always saying that inventors should be famous.  We should be known like “best-selling book authors or film directors,” where everyone knows our names when we’re successful.  I’ll admit that I wouldn’t mind having my name on the front of the box of a game I design because I’m proud of my work, but that’s pretty much were it ends.  Like so many creatives, I’m a bit of an introvert and I’m really happy chilling in my office working.  So can you imagine my surprise when Chicago Magazine came knocking asking to do an article on me?   I think I had to pick up my jaw from my desk.  Thankfully, it was fun!

Here’s what came of that multi-day, multi-hour conversation, and half-day photoshoot: The Queen of Games.

A Few Notes

1. Yes, those are real dice and we had to pick them up off the floor after each series of shots.

2. They counted the products on my site, and that’s just a sampling of them.  I don’t count, and I won’t ever count — keeps me moving forward.

3. I don’t actually know of anyone who fears me in this industry — maybe the ones who tried not to pay me.  ha!

4. No, I was not there when they did the photo set up because yes, the set up for The Build Up is incorrect.  But it still, looks fun doesn’t it? (it’s because it is!)
