SJB lives in Southern California, though she can't remember deciding to move there from San Francisco. She got a degree in theatre and enjoyed the student loan debt so much she went for a Masters in Film and Television. Per Los Angeles County regulations, she declared herself a screenwriter upon arrival and is often seen typing away in her local Starbucks in order to maintain the persona. She plays a healer on World of Warcraft and therefore will never be allowed to stop playing. You can follow her on Twitter @sjbwrite!
