Some kids are raised in the forest by wolves. Chris-Rachael was raised in suburbia by geeks. This explains her altar of outdated tech gadgets, closet full of costumes she’s never worn on halloween, and Doctor Who themed bathroom. Austin is her tenth city in twenty years. This time, she says she's settling down for good. Honest. While meandering across the world as an urban nomad, she has picked up a graduate degree in history, attended the Clarion Workshop, and enjoyed a career as a freelance journalist and copywriter. You can keep up with her real world technology reporting at The Austin Post. If the real world depresses you, escape into her short stories or drink yourself into 19th century oblivion with her aptly titled steampunk cocktail book, SteamDrunks.
