Story behind your name: When I first started derby, I was a children's librarian, so I felt compelled to pick a kiddie lit name.
Number: 823 (the Dewey Decimal number for British authors)
Place of birth: Naha, Okinawa Prefecture, Japan
A Hunnie since: March 2011 (charter member)
Skate Specs (boot, bearings, wheels, etc): Bont hybrid boot, Pilot Falcon Plate, Cheezeball Cheddar bearings, Reckless Morph 93/97 wheels
Favorite move: getting in the opposing jammer's way and also drawing them back for a track cut
Derby injuries: a few bumps and bruises but nothing major so far (knock on wood). I was told by a tech that I have great bone density.
Favorite derby moment: our current team's win in June of 2016 against our friendly rivals, the Rolling Valkyries. We had a long dry spell and worked hard to achieve that win.
Why you got into derby: I first read a book about it, just out of curiosity's sake. Months later, I watched my first bout after experiencing a car crash on the Interstate on the way home from a snow skiing trip. I figured if I can survive that, I can survive anything!
Drink of choice: during the game/practice, water or Pedialyte, at the after party, Angry Orchard.
