Oh, little old me?
I’m Frisky Sour, and I wrote a book called Roller Derby for Beginners. Now, I’m the so-called brains behind the Roller Derby for Beginners site.
I started playing roller derby in very late 2007 with Bleeding Heartland Roller Derby in Bloomington, Indiana. I was very, very bad at it, but they taught me how to skate. In early 2009, having moved back home to Portland, Oregon, I started skating with the Rose City Rollers: first as a Wrecker, then Fresh Meat, a Break Neck Bettie, and once in awhile, as a member of the B-Team Axles of Annihilation. More importantly, I got to coach Fresh Meat.
When I retired from skating in 2012, I actually had time to write this book to help new skaters, and people who might be thinking about skating, but wanted to know what they were getting into.
I also love manatees.
