About me

I am an early American historian and a ten year veteran writer of the tabletop games industry. I have written extensively for the World of Darkness and the Chronicles of Darkness under my maiden name, Hayley Margules. I am also a player in the upcoming podcast The Mechangelus Chronicle, and I starred as Jill in a script reading of Scream 4 on Youtube. We will not be using maps, or moving by hex or square. I am a Storyteller, and my focus is on us telling stories together. We will be using our imaginations, not graphics.

GM style

I loves narrative-rich games with a mix of roleplay, character work, and adventure. My favorite games focus on visceral, dark, horror, politics, and intrigue. My favorite thing in the world other than my son is Star Wars. I have a BA, two MAs, and left a PhD program in early American history. My research mostly focuses on kids and the conceptual evolution of childhood over time.
