Introducing The Gamer Widows.
Heidi and Emma met online via mutual friends. They quickly realised just how much in common they and their gamer partners had. After a year or so they finally met in person at a weird business conference. That was three years ago. In fact that was the only time they have ever sat on a couch together.
Heidi (Widow 2) is partner to a gamer and MMORPG creator, Mum of two teen gamers and two infant gamers-in-training. Her life often revolves around pre-release dates, upgrade packs, desperately needed gaming accessories, timing turns on various platforms, and a good bit of frustration that it’s never HER turn to play! She’s given up and now hides behind a sewing machine in an attempt to drown out the sound of gaming death and destruction. She accepts bribery in the form of chocolate, coffee and cake.
Emma (Widow 1) is the illustrator of the site. She’s the mum of The Child and wife of The Gamer who take over the lounge playing games, she misses out, leaving her to watch videos of cats on youtube. She can also be found massaging people, drawing pictures on them with henna, typing endless messages on facebook and on occasion, hanging out the washing. She loves shoes, chocolate, cupcakes and endless cups of tea.
