Heather Newman has been a gaming and tech journalist for 20 years, with columns running in more than 75 newspapers and sites nationwide and a few more overseas. Her copy of Zork came in a baggie, she scored a (single, lousy) point against Fatal1ty in Unreal Tournament, and she exclusively broke the release date for the original World of Warcraft.
Lately she's been recovering from a jaunt to South Korea, playing far too many levels of Druid's Duel, and discovering new and annoying ways to take selfies in World of Warcraft. Read about how Warcraft helped get her a day job, in the Wall Street Journal.
Heather joined the GamesBeat crew in part because of the VentureBeat/GamesBeat ethics policy: after two decades as a professional journalist, a site that cares this much about doing it right feels like home.
