by jayneoconnor

Using the questions from the board game “Real People” HydeATL gets to know the real people behind the readers and performers at Bad Bitches 2012 apocaBITCH.mail

HydeATL gets to know Bad Bitch Amy Herschleb. Amy is a poet and the managing editor of Fanzine. She assures us that all of this is 100 percent true.

OCCUPATION: Spinster; Editrix of the Fanzine
CHILDHOOD NICKNAME: Gumbaby
A SECRET FANTASY: To be an evil queen living at the top of the
tallest/elitist tower & doing evil queen type shit: shutting down
bratty princess types, thwarting vain princes, having a vast army of
minions to wreck shit, & ruling.
UNUSUAL FACT: A Tale of Two Bad Mice is my favorite Beatrix Potter
story; I love cooking elaborate brunches in secret for myself
PET PEEVE: Bad coffee; ghosts that won’t let me sleep; people with
shit proxemics or are un-self-aware
I’D LIKE TO MEET: Charlotte Gainsbourg; Margaret Atwood; a fabulously
wealthy yet disinterested patron (hell yeah, benevolent neglect!)
PERSONAL MOTTO: INVICTA.
MOST PROUD OF: Maintaining legal sanity while becoming the eccentric
I’ve always dreamed of being.
REPUTATION IN HIGHSCHOOL: That I could get away with anything, being
the principal’s daughter. Buncha nonsense! I always had to be extra
good because Dad would find out in 2 seconds if I were acting up.
THREE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE ME: Paths of desire.

Check out some of Amy’s writing for FANZINE here and her tumblr which includes her winning bout at WRITE CLUB ATLANTA and her reading at last years BAD BITCHES with KYD.
