A. Bottinick had hoped to be an aged, amateur lady detective living in a quaint English village—but there were no job openings. So she’s making do covering procedurals and British television as a Senior Writer at TV Guide Magazine and TVInsider.com. Before that, she worked at Entertainment Weekly and Turner Classic Movies. And before that, she contributed to the cinema studies textbook A History of Narrative Film. She fears ginger cats and series finales of her favorite shows.
