BIO

Audra connected to another computer via a modem in 7th grade, when she dialed into her local BBS and got in her first internet argument.  She's been online ever since, writing about feminism, politics, and culture, while attempting to achieve the credibility and confidence of a mediocre white man.  She is part of a lovely non-monogamous family in Toronto, and — true to form — is currently wearing a caftan and surrounded by cats.
