A graduate of the University of Washington, Caitlin Hodgins is a mummy-slaying, gnome-sized adventurer who enjoys tabletop gaming and roleplaying. She is also an aspiring writer, and an IT manager in Seattle. Mesmerized by fantasy and science fiction, she spends most of her time reading, writing, and daydreaming of far-off worlds.

Working with Scratchpad Publishing is Caitlin’s first foray into game design and dedicated playtesting.
