Katrina Hill Action Movie Freak SciFi Expo

There are a lot of reasons why I like Katrina Hill.  She is pretty, down to earth, can hold her own in a conversation (which means she’s smart), classy, and she knows how to listen.
I have bumped into her a few times at different locations over the last couple of years.  I have never made an impression with her so she doesn’t remember me. She always seemed willing to talk and never looked like a cornered rabbit as we chatted.
When I first started my blog I was trying to learn about social media.  I stumbled across her website and her Twitter feed.  After I followed her on Twitter, she followed back and sent a thank you. She was one of the first to follow me. I have tried to follow that example.
As I learned more about social media, I notice how various females genre icons grow and keep their followers.  Some females show off their physical assets with tight deep plunging shirts or pseudo-naive double-entendres to keep their fans slobbering.  Some rant and rave about injustices and are negative about everything just to generate comments.  Or some show you content and interact with their base with open questions on a variety of topics real or imagined.  Katrina Hill is of the later.
So I was thrilled to see she would be attending SciFi Expo as a guest.  I had her book and got her to sign it. She spent a few minutes with me. The conversation skipped topics quickly. We talked SDCC and how life is different for her as a panelist compared to my life as a fanboy autograph hound.  We talked about G4TV and their changes and future.  I did forget to ask about the movie Bad Kids Go to Hell which she has a small part in. Next time.
As normal, I heard the ticking of the clock loudly in my head, even when there is time.  Not wanting to overstay my welcome, I thanked her and left.
I hope we bump into each other at SDCC. Of course that would be like a needle in a haystack but it’s already nice to see someone from back home.



  1. I wasn't aware she had a book. I've only seen one snippet from G4 a while back and I'm not on Twitter enough.

  2. I first discovered the awesomeness that is Kat Hill while watching a Super Mario Bros. review with her and "Black Nerd" Andre Meadows. I got to meet her last year's NYCC weekend. She's an awesome person! Glad you got to meet her!

  3. It's a great book, fun to read, fun to look through, fun to discuss with other action movie lovers. Really like her style. Meeting this author would rock.

  4. Daniel - Yes! She has a book. And with a DVD inside!

    royallance – glad you got to meet her. She does get to a few conventions across the country. I hope to do NYCC one day soon.

    Bill – Glad you liked the book. I thoroughly enjoyed talking with her. I’m sure you will see her somewhere one of these days.
