About

Eileen Wiedbrauk is a writer, tech geek, designer, coffee addict, cat herder, public library fangirl, former editor and founder of World Weaver Press, MFA grad, Odyssey Workshop alum, web developer-in-training, kdrama devotee, avid reader, and a somewhat decent cook. She wears many hats, as the saying goes. Which is an odd saying in this case, as she rarely looks good in hats.

About the Blog and Eccentric Review: Remember when you were a kid and while all the adults were talking about something dull, you were the one getting the VCR to stop flashing 12:00? I do. If you’re like me, you still get asked these sort of quotidian tech questions, so now I blog short documentation and how-tos when I’m asked these kinds of questions by friends and family. Also, I write reviews of things as I see fit. Usually things I like. Sometimes I podcast those reviews. The subject matter is primarily Korean TV dramas (subtitled in English) and related material. Sometimes I post on writing and storycraft. It’s eclectic. And eccentric.
