DragonLady grew up in rural Arkansas, and now lives in North Carolina with her two children. Though she had dreams of becoming a rock star, and spent countless hours playing her guitar while listening to Fleetwood Mac CDs, she decided to find a steady job somewhere other than a factory. She enlisted in the Air Force, and served for 8 years. Now she is a blood-sucking IT contractor, but no longer feels fulfilled by IT work, and is back in school to change her career into Human Services (not Human Resources). Occasionally, she still writes. Her real name is Martha Nemec, and she sometimes talks about herself in the 3rd person.
