MJ Guthrie

- Contributing Editor -

When not immersed in her favorite virtual worlds, MJ can be found hanging out with her family, reading, coaching/playing sports, writing fiction, singing, and dabbling in graphic design (in random order, depending on mood and season). Her favorite part of MMOs? Observing the dynamics of virtual communities. That psychology degree has to come in handy somewhere, doesn't it?

MJ's Massively adventures can be found many places:  She co-created Some Assembly Required; penned Wings Over Atreia; investigates conspiracies in Chaos Theory; chronicles adventures in Norrathian Notebook; and livestreams for The Stream Team.
