{{@/Shukmeister}} lives in Hampton Roads, VA, at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay. She spends much of her time doing public safety-oriented stuff, or writing really bad poetry and cheesy romance fiction. She has never used the oven in her kitchen since she bought her house (and is proud of the fact!).

Her favorite {{Anime}} influences as a child include ''{{Robotech}}'', ''[[UchuuSenkanYamato Star Blazers]]'', and just about anything in the early years that was {{Macekre}}'d. Luckily, she has moved on to better fare such as ''BlackLagoon'', ''{{Saiyuki}}'', and other bloodthirsty anime.

Literature influences include: RogerZelazny, RobertHeinlein, StephenKing, EdgarAllenPoe, and most public domain classics. Oh and those little, red-spined monthly Harlequins...

She is a fan of KoreanDrama and has spent many an hour squinting at subtitles. She recently expanded into other Asian live-action series, most notably Japanese and [[TaiwaneseSeries Taiwanese]].
