Biographies

Cynthia Ward Cooper Cynthia Ward Cooper
WHOOSH Staff: Supreme Keeper of the Sacred FAQ
Cynthia Cooper was born in Fort Riley, Kansas on December 18, 1959, to a young Army officer and his Southern belle wife. Her early years were marked not only by incessant travel, but also by the knowledge that her birth date had been calculated to maximize her parents' tax benefits. After a number of adventures, including her rather surprising matriculation from Rice University, Cynthia moved to Dallas, where a promising career as a neo-punk hair model was cut short due to an unfortunate follicular accident. While waiting for her hair to grow back, she earned a master's degree in library science, and is presently masquerading as a technical librarian in a Dallas-area public library. Present obsessions include bad horror movies, Richard III, and the study of ritual cannibalism (though she hastens to assure all that she's a vegetarian). Cynthia has been an ardent Xenite since the very first episode of XWP, and frequently expresses the opinion that the world would be a far better place if everyone would just sit down together and watch Xena once a week.

Nusi P. Dekker Nusi P. Dekker
Native Californian, born 1951 (old for a Xenite, but my 81-year-old father is an ardent fan!) I live in the Bay Area and work at UCSF Medical Center, where I manage an oral pathology research lab. I run experiments on human biopsy tissue (mostly cancers) and am primary or co-author of over 30 research papers. I was an art major before I switched to cell biology, but I still love ancient art and mythology. I have never in my life done any fan thing until Xena!

Beth Gaynor Beth Gaynor
WHOOSH Staff: Html Coder/Episode Guide Writer
http ://arcane.eng.ohio-state.edu/bgaynor/xenarate.htm
Beth Gaynor lives in Columbus, Ohio (go Buckeyes!) and works for small company called DPEC. She edits, codes, and organizes text from books to make them into courses that people take on their computers. Outside of the office, she is often spotted at the Columbus Zoo, where she volunteers as a docent. This usually involves answering the question "Where's the bathroom?", although she gets breaks from that long enough to talk about the animals and help the keepers. Beth is peeking around the corner at her thirtieth birthday and stays young and vigorous by battling for house supremacy alongside her husband against their two cats. So far, the struggle is too close to call.
