R. Shannon Duval

R. Shannon Duval is a Ph.D in philosophy, Fulbright Scholar, second degree black belt in TaeKwonDo, and a national champion in kali arnis. Known as "The Wonder Ninja" for her dual careers in philosophy and martial arts, Germ's Creative Director and Managing Editor has traveled to lands far and near, and has discovered that while the pen is mightier than the sword in all of them, swords are still an awful lot of fun. She loves playing hide and seek in things that are bigger on the inside than the outside, simultaneously wielding distinctions and edged weapons, pondering the original nature of snowmen, and tending the three agents of chaos posing as her heirs.
