Bonnie Fitzpatrick Bonnie Fitzpatrick (aka Dragon Lady)
I'm a proud Hard Core Nutball, co-founder of the Flawless discussion list, a member of Sword and Staff and part of the NYC Xenafest Planning Committee. In between XENA activities I'm a manager in the Loss Prevention department of a major retail chain. I'm an ex-Army Intelligence Officer and, more years ago than I care to admit, I was a model for, among other things, Ivory Snow.
Favorite episode: THE GAUNTLET (H12/112)
Favorite line: Melosa: "I make it a point to know my enemies." (HOOVES AND HARLOTS, 10/110)
First episode seen: PR0METHEUS (08/108)
Least favorite episode: Any Joxer heavy episode, especially KING OF ASSASSINS (54/308) and FOR HIM THE BELL TOLLS (40/216)

Nessa KingNessa King
My name is Nessa King, my partner Kimmie Kat and I have been writing the HERCULES and XENA biography books for the past couple of months. We've had some great experiences with the actors and actresses doing this. I have been writing seriously for about five years now. I enjoy many things in life but XENA takes the cake.
Favorite episode: WARRIOR...PRINCESS...TRAMP (30/206) Actually, my favorite is any of the eps that have more then one character portrayed by Lucy Lawless. I enjoy something that is challenging for the actors and creative team.
Favorite line: Callisto: "Here comes trouble." (A NECESSARY EVIL, 38/214)
First episode seen: SINS OF THE PAST (01/101)
Least favorite episode: DREAMWORKER (03/103) due to the lack of action and poorly written script.
