Mothering: The Game

Regina McMenomy, Ph.D., she of unassailable gamer cred (Zork, anyone?), is a Top 10 contestant in The Nerdist’s Inkshares contest with her book “Mothering the Game.” If you like mothers and you like games, you’ve got to go to the Inkshares site and sign up. Listen and geek out to talk about games of yore and funny parenting stories. (Lots of talk about World of Warcraft.)

Linda learned to play video games as a way to connect with her teenaged kids, and then she learned to love video games for their own sake. At Pixelkin she wrangles the business & management side of things, writes posts as often as she can, reaches out on the social media, and does the occasional panel or talk. She lives in Seattle, where she writes, studies, plays video games, spends time with her family, consumes vast quantities of science fiction, and looks after her small cockapoo. She loves to hear from people out there. You can read more about her at her website, Linda Breneman.com or her family foundation's website, ludusproject.org.
