Some people are born to money, some to fame, some to athleticism. Deirdre was born to Sci-Fi fandom, her ancestors having been avid fans since the late 1800's. She has witnessed Science Fiction going from a fringe genre, to mainstream, and takes comfort in knowing that her ancestors would heartily approve.
Aside from SF, Deirdre is a tree hugging, gardening, amateur herbalist recluse who is in general unafraid to share her opinions, even when she knows they are unpopular.
And how better to geek out than to discuss fandoms with people you barely know?
