Her Life in Fandom

"Although I am much less involved in it today then I used to be, media fandom has long played an important part in my life, both on-line and off-line. I started going to science fiction conventions in the mid-90s, where I met many people who would become some of my best friends for life. I also got to meet many of my favorite actors, including Dwight Schultz (who played my childhood hero, "Howlin' Mad" Murdock, on "The A-Team.") My first experiences writing and designing content for the internet were dedicated to different fandoms, and I established the very first A-Team fanpage (which was featured in various print publications and TV shows) during those years, along with various other projects. I became interested in writing and publishing fanzines, which although mocked by many professional writers gave me great experience and training which I use in my freelance writing today." [2]

Nickname

"One Last Mystery Revealed: Why "sockii"?!?! The Story Behind My Nickname: 'I've been asked that question many many times: so why the heck do I call myself "sockii"?! Well, it goes back to my A-Team fandom roots, I'm afraid. I wanted an on-line handle that was unique when I was first involved in fandom, and a particular episode of the series was one of my favorites. I also really like drinking sake. I decided to spell it a little different as well for uniqueness, therefore sockii was born." [3]
