About the Author

Petrea Burchard began her career as an actor, starting on the Chicago stage and later moving to Los Angeles to work in TV and film. There, voice-over became central to her work.

But with a degree in Creative Writing, she's always been a writer. Auditions, jobs and the people she met (famous and infamous) were fodder for her Act As Ifhumor column at NowCasting.com, reaching 70,000-100,000 readers every other week during its four-year run. Her book, Act As If: Stumbling Through Hollywood With Headshot in Hand, is based on that column.

Petrea also drew on her acting experience to write her first novel, Camelot & Vine. During a summer Shakespeare course at Oxford, she fell in love with the English countryside, and there the story of a modern woman in King Arthur's war camp began to take shape in her imagination.

Other published works include short stories such as Portraits, in the anthology Literary Pasadena: The Fiction Edition; more stories at RoseCitySisters.com; and countless articles, listicles and online book reviews.

Petrea continues to work in voice-over and is known as the original English voice of Ryoko, the sexy space pirate in the anime classic, Tenchi Muyo!Currently she's the radio and TV voice a popular supermarket chain in southern California. She lives in Pasadena with her husband and their articulate dog, Wilma.
