I’m Sabrina Zbasnik (you can call me a witch if you’d like, most people do) and I’ve been gaming since Atari’s idea of boxing was an M with two circles on the ends. After burning out a Gameboy and trying to play Where’s Waldo on the Nintendo (dead serious. There was a Where’s Waldo? game. Nintendo was actively encouraging eye damage), my younger gaming days fizzled. Growing up with a Mac before they were cool, I never did much computer gaming. I can talk your ear off about Nanosaur if you also suffered through the days of “What’s a Mac?”
I threw in with the PlayStation in the console wars and am super into RPGs – especially anything Bioware. Beware, I’m a terrible Bioware pusher and have been known to talk appendages off about Dragon Age specifically. Bioshock, The Elder Scrolls series, Assassin’s Creed (mostly just Ezio’s run – let us never speak of 3), all the Lego games; what draws me to a game is the story. If I like the story, I’ll replay the hell out of it.
My degree is in animal science with a focus on molecular biology, meaning I know just enough about genetics to ruin 99% of sci-fi movies. I live in Nebraska, and yes, we are all corn stalks that gained sentience. Sometimes my silk clogs up the fan on my laptop. I currently have four novels out, three of which are fantasy. The fourth is the beginning of a sci-fi/fantasy series called Dwarves in Space. It’s got your Dwarves, it’s got your Space, it’s got homicidal computers who only have access to hand dryers.
