Eileen Murphy is a writer, editor, hopefully-soon-to-be-novelist, and conservation activist who also happens to be a closet Nintendo nerd. Her lifelong passion was inherited from her mother, who took up video games as a hobby when the original Game Boy hit the market in 1989. After a brief affair with the Sega Genesis, Eileen received a Game Boy Color and a copy of Pokemon Blue. Nearly 20 years later, Pokemon remains one of her favorite series, but The Legend of Zelda takes first place in her heart (container!).
