Kira (she/her) has been working in bookstores for the better part of the last fifteen years. A lover of fantasy, sci-fi, and romance, Kira is passionate about the transformative potential of imaginary worlds and the power of collaboration and collectivity in fact and fiction. She will likely remain perpetually All-But-Dissertated - her research in comparative studies focused on belonging and found family in speculative audio fiction (podcasts) and fan communities. Kira has a chapter in Roleplaying Games in the Digital Age: Essays on Transmedia Storytelling, Tabletop RPGs, and Fandom from McFarland. Her piece looks at collaborative storytelling, worldbuilding, and audience participation in the actual-play D&D fantasy comedy podcast The Adventure Zone. From 2016-2019, she was the Editorial Assistant for the Journal of Language and Sexuality. She loves playing RPGs and video games, crocheting, volunteering at PAWS Atlanta, reading and watching sci-fi and fantasy, and wrangling her four cats: Ichabod Crane, Magrathea, Hazelnut, and Mr. Tumnus.
