Alice Baker is a frustrated creative soul by night and a super busy operations manager by day. Her greekiness started many years ago when her father put her to bed at night with the fantastically words of J.R.R. Tolkien. As she grew up, her love of the worlds of science fiction and fantasy also grew expanding to include comic books, D&D, video games and other realms where the stories are epic and the worlds amazing. Today she escapes to those worlds as often as she can and attempts to take muggles with her as often as she can.
