Cemetry Gates - Libbi Rich
Libbi Rich describes herself as a middle-aged punk princess, pop culture hound, Geekgirl, liberal activist, general shit-stirrer, reader of nanopunk/cyberpunk/comics/anything-I-can-get-my-hands-on, wife and mom. She is a former band manager/promo Ninja, ad executive, street team lead and juvenile public defense attorney (in training). She holds degrees in Journalism and Creative Writing from San Jose State University and a J.D. from U.C. Hastings College of Law. After taking a 15 year break to raise her kids, she has resurrected her Photojournalism career focusing on music, comics, Geek culture, social issues and anything else that stokes her passion. Words and pics can be found at Doom Magazine and Mamarox Images. An award winning author, Libbi was coaxed out of the shadows in 2010 by Eric M. Esquivel to write "Lyssa and the Terribly Inappropriate Outfit" in his 'zine, Normal. Soon after, she set her sights on the comic book world. Now that she's kicked that door in, she's not walking back through it.
