Bodhi Grrl

Bodhi Grrl! is the pseudonym of Julien R. Fielding, a part-time university lecturer and long-time entertainment writer. (The highlight of her existence was meeting Meatloaf and Bruce Campbell, although not at the same time. That would have been too much.) Her book, Discovering World Religions at 24 Frames Per Second, will be published through Scarecrow Press in October. She loves J-horror, Fight Club, Star Wars, and Hayao Miyazaki.
