Swann is an author, gamer, and world traveler.

She gets her name from “Wonder Swan”, the Japanese-exclusive handheld console, which she chose for her gamertag with two “n”s – and the name stuck.

Swann is from Seattle, and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Japanese from the University of Washington.

Her favorite games include Skyrim, Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Harvest Moon, and Animal Crossing. Her favorite console is the N64, and she has a particular love for retro video games, and 8-bit and 16-bit graphics.

Swann has been to parts of Europe, Asia, and North America, and is working toward seeing the world – and writing all about it.
