Amelia Hill has been a Star Wars fan since she first saw A New Hope at the age of seven.
Amelia's articles on books, music, video games and other subjects have appeared on a number of websites. She graduated with a B.A. from Colgate University.
I love immersing myself in the Star Wars universe because of its vastness: it's an epic story that extends far beyond the movies and has something for everyone, ranging from light and kid-friendly to dark and depressing. I wrote my first Star Wars fanfic in elementary school, based on characters from the Glove of Darth Vader series, and my search for more Expanded Universe novels led to my first foray into the grown-up section of the library. My favorite EU series is the Hand of Thrawn duology by Timothy Zahn. In an attempt to raise my geek cred, I have watched the entire Holiday Special more than once.
