Deanna was the kid who loved talking and writing about books just as much as she loved reading them. Her interests quickly expanded to cover films, music, video games, and more, and she got her professional start writing book and game reviews for several outlets. She took a detour into the entertainment industry for work in sound, story development, and publicity, but she returned to the writing and editing world as a ghostwriter for several screenplays and books, spanning sci-fi, historical fiction, self-improvement, and business. When she's not reading or writing, you can find her learning languages, dancing, or playing video games.
