Ashe to Ashes (AKA New Blood at the Catholic Geeks!)

When we started The Catholic Geeks, the intent was always to grow beyond our original seven when we found more people who qualified. I was hoping to recruit from more students and graduates of Christendom College (already disproportionately represented among our number, which helps our world-domination plans), and this is now become a reality. One of the students who attended my creative writing lectures there, who now lives in the greater DC area, decided to audition and was accepted.

(Well, okay. Actually, I tricked her into auditioning, then gave her the offer. It was more of an ambush, really.)

The “About the Catholic Geeks” page has been updated with the following entry:

Aislinn GibsonAfter escaping the terrors of upstate New York, Aislinn Gibson (pronounced “Ash-leen,” for those of you unlucky enough not to be Irish) fled to the Northern Virginia where she spends most of her time enjoying a good tale.  Graduating with a degree in English Literature from Christendom College, it’s no wonder one of her passions in life is stories.  Being of Irish decent helps too.

She aspires one day to touch the world of storytellers either through a book (if her attention span holds) or by fulfilling her childhood dream of being on the big screen.  In the meantime, she’s happy being a simple Youth Minister at her local Catholic church, retelling the lives of saints to eager young minds on the cusp of adulthood.

So, please welcome Ashe to the blog!

Oh, and what was that ambush audition, you ask? Well, if you’re a member of the official Catholic Geek Facebook discussion group, you already know she was giving running commentary while reading Blood Rites, the sixth book of The Dresden Files. She was already commenting privately, and I bribed her into doing it for all the group to see. The other CG members (meeting in the incense-smokey back room where we do all our nefarious plotting) agreed that if that’s what she did when she wasn’t in “publish an article” mode, she’d make a fine addition.

If you aren’t part of the Facebook group (and why not?), Ashe will be cleaning up the posts and publishing them here on the blog in the near future.

Taking over the world
