"Astie's quintessential voice shines through, and her trademarkquirky relatives and less-than-graceful heroines are ever present...Sweet,romantic and angsty, Gamer Girl movesright along in pace... a fun and touching read." -Nerd Girl Official
"As a fan of Astie's 'French' series, I must say, Glynis Astie has done it again with her delightful new book Gamer Girl! Madcap hijinks and sweetromance abound...One thing's for sure: Astie's bevy of characters, including anindomitable grandmother, a dreamy leading man, a histrionic best friend, allthose Italian relatives, not to mention the insane co-workers, make Meri'sadventures off-line well worth the read!" -Geralyn Corcillo, author of Miss Adventure and Queen of the Universe

About the Author
As this was just the beginning of their epic love story, Glynis continued to chronicle their adventures in the sequel, French Toast, and the final installment in the series, French Fry. After she finished milking her life story for all it was worth, she decided to write straight-up fiction with Gamer Girl, which infused her beloved chick lit with a hint of fantasy. She then realized there were a few ounces left in her real-life French fairy tale, and added French Roast to the mix. She is currently considering writing a prequel to the series, and is therefore questioning her definition of "final installment."
When Glynis is not writing, she is trying to keep the peace amongst the three men and two cats in her life, finding missing body parts (Lego pieces are small!), supervising a myriad of homework assignments and keeping a tenuous hold on her sanity by consuming whatever chocolate is in the vicinity.
