About Maureen McCarty

Managing Editor Emerita

- I'm a Scorpio in every sense of the word. - I think proper grammar is the sexiest thing about a man or woman. - I spend the majority of my time lurking on TNG behind a computer at local coffee shops. - My girlfriend and I live in D.C. with our three cats— and yes, I'm aware of how cliche that may look.
