ABOUT THE AUTHOR
At the age of 12, Meagan Marie wanted to be Lara Croft. After realizing that "fictional character" wasn't a vocation--and archeology wasn't quite as thrilling as depicted in Tomb Raider--she set her sights on working in the video game industry. Meagan attended school for Graphic Design and Journalism/Mass Communications at the University of Minnesota and secured a position at Game Informer magazine fresh out of college. She worked at Game Informer for a handful of years, authoring world-exclusive cover stories for Portal 2 and Tomb Raider. The latter introduced her to the Tomb Raider team and put her on Crystal Dynamics' radar. Once the issue hit newsstands and the fresh take on the franchise had debuted to the world, Meagan was offered a position at the company as the studio Community Manager, relocating to California to accept the role. Now Sr. Community Manger, over the past five years Meagan has been responsible for creating and evolving the brand presence on social media, hosting community events worldwide, and participating in interviews and appearances as a studio spokesperson.
Meagan's passion for Tomb Raider has been a constant throughout her life--from dressing up as Lara in her teens to saving her allowance money to buy variant Tomb Raider comics, to always looking for her next outdoor adventure. She still dresses up as Lara Croft. Some things don't change.
