Viv lives in Virginia, and is married with two sons from a previous marriage and another son from her husband’s previous marriage. The family adopted a golden retriever pup in February of 2009, and a daily photo blog of Kaylee‘s first few months was created.
She co-hosts two podcasts, one with her husband Chooch. Into The Blender is about their lives in a blended family and SpecFicMedia.com Presents: Beyond the Wall, A Game of Thrones Podcast with fellow hosts (and creator) P.G. Holyfield, Christiana Ellis and Nuchtchas “Nutty” Nimlas.
Viv also hosts an extremely sporadic Girls’ Rules, with a rotating panel of women giving their opinions and experiences on various topics.
Podcasting has led to meeting fascinating people in the community, as well as participation at Balticon 43, Balticon 44, Balticon 45 and the upcoming Balticon 46 and Dragon*Con 2009 and 2012 by appearing on new media panels.
COHPodcast was greatly honored to be a Finalist in both the 2008 and 2009 Parsec Awards, but sadly came home empty handed both years.
Viv participated in the 2008 and 2009 NaNoWriMo, and won in 2009. This was highly personal in nature, and there is no planned distribution.
She has also lent her voice to other audio projects in the podcasting world, including minor roles in Chasing The Bard, Metamor City – Season One, Form Letter Rejection Theatre, Buffy Between the Lines – Season 2, The Empress Sword, Digital Magic, Ruby’s Child by Philip Carroll on the First Edition of the Flying Island Press and others.
She and her husband are looking forward to new projects and new adventures with their family and friends in the coming year.
