My name is Natacha Guyot; and I am a French scholar in her mid-thirties. Born in Paris, I grew up in the Versailles area; and have strong Slavic roots. I now reside in Virginia with my husband Brian and our rescue cats, Kenobi and Saurfang.
I am currently working on my doctoral dissertation as part of the Arts and Humanities program at the University of Texas at Dallas. My research topic is Dr. Dana Scully from The X-Files. My graduate studies took place in both Europe and North America; and my expertise is in film and media studies, feminism, science and religion, and storytelling.
An avid reader by nature, I have been a Science Fiction and Fantasy amateur since I was a child. Without Star Wars, my life would be very different. Not only did it inspire me to write my own stories, choose film studies; but this is also why I met my husband and many of my friends.
I have always been a storyteller, whether for creative leisure with fan videos and post-by-post role-playing; or for professional original fiction.
I am currently collaborating with speculative fiction author RA Stone on a multi-generational space opera universe, which addresses religious and cultural bigotry, eugenics, xenophobia; and also involves magic, medical and technological advancement, and non-traditional family structures.
