When she’s not writing or working her day job, she can be found gallivanting around theme parks, reading, and–to quote Owen Lars–wasting time with her friends when her chores are done.

Nanci received a Master’s degree in History, where she wrote her thesis on the evolution of female workers at Kennedy Space Center. (If you’re so inclined, you can read it here!)

In other geeky pursuits, Nanci is the co-founder of Tosche Station, a Star Wars and geek culture blog and podcast network. She hosts several shows on the network, including the flagship TSR, and writes news, reviews, and opinion pieces for the blog.
