Rules and Regulations

Christianne Benedict lives in Columbia, Missouri. Her scandalous career has included stints as an arms merchant, a grave digger, and a video store drone. She has spent most of her professional life as an institutional graphic designer and illustrator and has lately been working as an unpaid LGBT activist. The movie monkey on her back is the size of King Kong. She writes about movies on her blog, Krell Laboratories, and occasionally elsewhere if the money is right. She was also born with a Y-chromosome, but she's finally beaten that little bastard into submission.
