Between 2005 and 2009, Bonnie worked as a part-time, then full-time freelance journalist specializing in tech, games, sex, and gender.
In addition to writing her blog Heroine Sheik, she amassed a few hundred (eep!) articles while earning her gaming cred at websites like Joystiq, Terra Nova, Gamasutra, and The Escapist — and later as a regular contributer to mainstream publications like The Village Voice, The Economist, Wired, Forbes, The Onion, and SF Weekly.

About Heroine Sheik: Bonnie started Heroine Sheik back in 2005; it ran until late 2009, with a stint as part of The Village Voice. Initially intended as a place to rant about sex and games, Heroine Sheik ended up being both a personal and a theoretical site, a place where new media was always up for debate, where there was no such thing as over-analyzing, where Bonnie and her nerdiness were… sigh… home.
