Hello and welcome to Ruby Bastille!  My name is Laura and I’m a writer, reader, wife, feminist, Christian, geek, gamer, tea drinker, and several other things as well. I live near Portland, Oregon, where it rains about as much as they say it does, and where coffee and beards are even more common than they say they are.

A lot has happened within this blog. Currently it’s a fiction exercise, though it may contain, from time to time, rants or giddy raves about Star Wars, geek culture, feminism, and books.

You can follow me @RubyBastille or shoot me an email at rubybastille@gmail.com.
