The Border House Interviews … Amanda Valentine
[caption id="attachment_9159" align="alignleft" width="300"] A smiling woman with black rimmed glasses, and pulled back red hair.[/caption] Interview two in a series of how many as we need! This is the Border House Interviews, and we're interviewing Amanda Valentine. Amanda is an editor, who has been working with such table top game companies like Evil Hat Productions, and Margaret Weis Productions among many. She's been responsible for pulling together such RPGs like the Dresden Files RPG (Evil Hat), Bulldogs! (Gallileo Games), the Smallville RPG (MWP) and is the lead editor for Margaret Weis Production's Marvel: Super Heroic Roleplaying. She's also currently doing a review website called reads4tweens, where she hopes that she can get a lot of people reviewing books aimed at that tween level, because like many parents she can't keep up at the rate that their kids are reading. You can find her at the following places. Website: www.ayvalentine.com or www.reads4tweens.com Twitter: @ayvalentine Podcast is a little over twenty minutes, there's no transcript yet but if someone wants to work on that it would be appreciated.
