Samara Reynolds has built a large following as a gamer under an anonymous screenname, and uses her skills as a DEIA consultant to advocate for equal representation in video games. When she posted a video critiquing the popular game Legendsfall, she knew she’d get a reaction from her fans, but the video leads to hundreds of female gamers critiquing the game and its company, Artemis Games. The only thing more unexpected than starting an online movement is getting a job offer from the handsome CEO of Artemis.

Aron Galanis has been on a mission to get his company certified to create gaming content for people with disabilities. When he sees Artemis trending online for all the wrong reasons, he’s determined to right his wrongs and offers the originator a mea culpa, as well as a job offer to overhaul the character options in Legendsfall.

Working together turns Aron and Samara from adversaries into allies, allies into friends, and after that—something more. But once their relationship goes public, will Aron and Samara be able to weather the storm and fight for their happy ending, or is it game over?

What is a favorite compliment you have received on your writing?
“I feel seen, thank you so much!” came from a reader who had read The Love Con. She and her husband’s relationship was similar to Kenya and Cam’s, and she was a cosplayer too. She and readers like her are who I wrote it for.

How is Samara similar to or different from you?
I’m not sure I could be a lightning rod to the extent that Samara is in the book. I’ve done some “seat at the table” threads on the old bird app regarding publishing and writing organizations but that’s the most vocal I’ve been about advocacy.

In Game On, Samara has a cousin who is on the spectrum. I have three nephews who are, and Benjy is loosely based on my youngest nephew.

If Game On were made into a movie, who would you cast in the leading roles?

Good question! Samara Reynolds and Aron Galanis are loosely based on Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian. I had Gabrielle Union in mind while writing Samara. A long-haired Tom Holland would be great as Aron. Or why not a Tom-Zendaya reunion for Game On?

What is your all-time favorite video game?
This is a hard one for me, since I’m old enough to have played Centipede, Galaga, and Pac Man in actual arcades. Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation is my answer.

If your life were a TV series, which celebrity would you want to narrate it? 
Jennifer Lewis is hilarious and would be a great auntie voice. I wish I could say Cardi B, but my life isn’t exciting enough.

Share a favorite winter holiday memory with us.
For Christmas: when it was just the three oldest siblings, our single mother mom got us everything we’d wanted and we hung out in matching Americana pajamas all day.

For Yule: I attended an all-night Yule party where we strung popcorn and cranberry garland, encrusted pinecones with peanut butter and birdseed, had a candlelight ritual after midnight, then watched movies until dawn.

Thanks to Seressia for chatting with us and to Berkley for sharing her book with our readers.

Candy Crush is a guilty pleasure that I put on my phone and then delete because I feel like I need to...then put it back on! It's a losing battle!
