Birthday Interview with our Creative Director

Today is July 9th and our Creative Director Tiffany is celebrating her birthday, so we thought this was the perfect time to shine the spotlight in a different direction and learn a little bit more about the Mecha Panda team.

What do you do at Mecha Panda Publishing?

I take care of everything related to the content, production, and creation of our books/ebooks as well as devise the themes and subjects for the Pondo’s Playground podcast. I guess in simple terms, I make things for people to enjoy.

What is your favourite hobby and how did you start?

Writing used to take up this spot, but I now view it as being more than a hobby. It takes up a good portion of my time. It all started in grade 8 with a notebook in a boring math class. I suppose the hobby now is devising story concepts in multiple mediums, but even this is verging on being more than a hobby…

Do you have any pets?

Yes! I have a cat named Kat who enjoys sitting on my keyboard whenever I am not looking.

What book are you reading right now?

I am between books at the moment, but I just finished Diamondsong: Escape by E.D.E. Bell. A high recommend if you’re looking for some unique fantasy to sink your teeth into.

What author do you idolize or look up to?

I don’t have a specific person in mind for this question. I look up to authors who have the courage to write and put their work out there for people to see. It’s tough, and a milestone in its own right.

How did you come up with the concept for Pondo’s Playground?

Pondo’s Playground was born after a night of wine and music on my living room couch. I love audio, and wanted to create a show that captured all of my interests. I love stories; I love telling them, talking about them, and helping people discover them. The writing process feels like a playground to me, and Pondo is just way too cute to ignore.
