Haley (known in some circles as AwsmEngrGrl) was born, raised, and educated in the flyover states of America.
She's been a fan of scifi and fantasy tv, books, and movies from a young age, and recently started reading all of the Marvel comics starting with Fantastic Four #1. All of them.

THE SECRET ORIGIN OF LAUREN: Lauren thought that she was just a normal girl until the day that someone informed her that only geeks read comics and watch Star Wars. And from that day forward, a geek she was. Now she spends most of her time reading comics, writing horror fiction, watching entirely too much TV, and knitting adorable lacy scarves while watching hideously depressing movies. Warning: talking with Lauren may result in an overly enthusiastic outburst known as the "fangirl flail" when discussing topics of interest. Topics of interest include Star Wars, X-men, Marvel, comics in general, A Song of Ice and Fire, genre fiction, genre TV shows, cute animals, animals that everyone else thinks are horrible, and Roman history.
