When I started blogging, one of the first standout geek girls I noticed was Action Flick Chick Katrina Hill. She is literally everywhere – Geek Nation, io9, Newsarama, and more. She was G4TV’s Next Women of the Web winner. Star Wars fans might recognize her as one of the San Diego Comic-Con MTV Geek co-hosts alongside Ashley Eckstein. At ActionFlickChick, Kat shares her love of ass-kicking films, and this month her book Action Movie Freak hit bookshelves. It’s a fun read for genre fans. As I read the book, I realized I had forgotten a few oldies but goodies, and that there were a few action movies I still needed to see.
Kat kindly took some time to answer a few questions about her book, the role of women in action movies, and what fans of action might expect to see in the future.
Tricia Barr took her understanding of brand management and marketing, mixed it with a love of genre storytelling, and added a dash of social media flare to create FANgirl Blog, where she discusses Star Wars, fandom, and strong female characters. She also writes about Star Wars for Random House’s science fiction and fantasy blog Suvudu.com and for Star Wars Insider magazine.
In her spare time, Tricia puts the finishing touches on her first novel, Wynde. For excerpts and tales of her adventures in creating a fictional universe, hop over to TriciaBarr.com.
