Hey Nikiverse!

Sorry for the delayed response. Luckily, though, what held me up was the answer to your question: In my free time, unsurprisingly, I like to write other things. Most recently I've been writing behind-the-scenes oral histories for the movies featured on Paul Scheer's HOW DID THIS GET MADE:

Outside of writing, I love spending time with my fiance (to whom CONSOLE WARS is dedicate) and hanging out with our little family of teddy bears...(less)

"This book made me depressed. And it isn't actually about 16-bit video games as I understood them at the time.

“There was no such thing as a magic touch, and it wouldn’t have mattered if there were, because the only thing it takes to sell toys, vitamins, or magazines is the power of story.
