Megan Lavey is a newspaper designer with the Patriot-News just outside Harrisburg, Pa. She is a bibliophile, and can't pass a bookstore without somehow making her way inside. Her journalism career has taken her from Alabama to the Tennessee/Virginia border, Maine, Arizona and finally Pennsylvania. She is also the co-creator of the webcomic Namesake. She currently resides just outside Enola, Pa. with her cats and is married lifelong to a lifelong Linux user who happens to be British, an astrophysicist and who constantly teases her about her deep love for Apple products. But, she's still madly in love with him anyhow. If you need to contact her for review purposes, please do so through this email.
