Jamie has an English degree with a focus in creative writing from The Ohio State University. This helped with self-publishing her very own novel. (Not quite positive how it helped, but surely it did.) The Perils of Long Hair on a Windy Day is available through Amazon and has sold very well among her family members. Her second novel is perpetually in progress. For a while, she tried her hand at vlogging – but shhh, we don’t talk about that.
Jamie reviews The 100, The Expanse, Haikyuu, Attack on Titan, and One Punch Man, just to name a few. She also recommends some great TV that you’re missing out on and contributes her insight on movies. She reviews books as she works her way through her massive “to read” pile. Jamie is a member of the San Diego Comic-Con team as well as part of our New York crew, helping cover numerous events in the Big Apple, including New York Comic Con. Check out her NYCC Beginner’s Guide!
Jamie helps with back end operations of the website, including merchandise giveaways and social media. Occasionally she pops up in our themed webcasts. She previously wrote for Fangirlish.

She’s been staff for several LARPS and conventions including New World Magiscola and Michigan’s PenguiCon. PenguiCon is also where she led a convention panel on creating board and card games. Her first solo game, None For Me, is due out from Calico Games early next year.

Rodney recently graduated from university with a Bachelor’s Degree in English Literature. When he’s not spending all of his free time planning and writing fanfiction, he’s building things in The Sims 4, and thinking up ideas for novels that he wants to eventually get around to writing.
As a contributor for The Geekiary, he provides insight into all things geek-related. Although, it’s safe to say that he has a serious soft spot for the world of superheroes, mystery, magic, and fandom. If there’s news brewing in the realm of Marvel or Scooby-Doo, he’s probably geeking out about it and figuring out how to properly translate his excitement into an intelligible article.
StickyKeys aka Stacey Yvonne graduated suma cum laude from the School of Hard Knox with a major in “These Streets” and “Scams”. She contributes to The Geekiary by way of producing content that will either get her yelled out by several angry people or not read at all. She loves it!
In her spare time she runs Beacon Hills: After Dark which is primarily a Teen Wolf podcast though she hasn’t actually talked about Teen Wolf in a very long time, go figure.
Interests include: Dylan O’Brien
