Elizabeth Badurina is a writer and sometimes-artist who recently escaped from the desert to shack up with a kindred spirit in the green and rainy wilds of Seattle. Though she hasn't yet encountered much of the post-1990s grunge culture, she's still trying to keep her finger on the youth pulse by reading and reviewing zines for Rambles and writing a few of her own. Her first book, which has been in progress for nearly all of her adult life, is within minutes of being finished, if she could just find the time to do so. Her ambition in life is to live with her pug-dog in a convertible 1965 Mustang with a satellite hookup, so she could travel the country in search of stories while still remaining tied to her email. In the meantime, she handles the 'zines page and has provided much help with the design and programming of Rambles.
