Over a decade ago, I spent a week driving to work in tears. Instead of listening to the usual music and chatter of morning radio, I was listening to a SickKids radio-a-thon where children and families poured out their hearts, talking about how much SickKids meant to them. I made myself a promise then: whether or not I had children, I would always support SickKids.

Fast forward a few more years and two daughters (ages ten and seven) later when, on another drive to work, I learned about Extra Life, a charity event where gamers play games for 24 hours in support of Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals. I was already a gamer--putting many hours into my favourite video games like Mass Effect and Dragon Age--and I was a parent. With my promise in mind, it was simple logic to make Extra Life a part of my gaming plans every year from then on. And as a gaming mom who happily lets her kids share in many of her gaming experiences, getting my kids involved with Extra Life was a no brainer too.

This is my mindspill. Mostly about comics, books, video games, movies of the science fiction and fantasy leanings. Sometimes recipes and parenting stuff will sneak in, along with a real world rant or two.

I also write about geek culture at Women Write About Comics, and I review genre fiction at The BiblioSanctum.
