GG Atwell was born in a small town in rural Philippines and migrated to the US with her parents and brother to seek out the American dream. Settling in the suburbs of Baltimore, MD; GG filled her days with artistic dreams of grandur and tons of books. She is obsessed with office supplies, thrift store shopping, old school hip hop and the grunge movement.
She has been many things including a shoe salesman, cigarette girl in various DC night clubs, an accountant and even a clown who face painted at children's party. Her dream to enter journalism is fulfilled by blogging, co-founding and managing the Indy Book Blog, Nerd Girl Official.
GG is surrounded by her mountains of books and endless piles of vinyl her husband collects. She has a dread lock mini-me, a dog who thinks she is a cat; two cats who think they are dogs and two guinea pigs who love nothing more than to eat corn.
