    NC hasn't seen this many SW signers in one place since the Men Behind the Mask tour used to come through Charlotte in the early 90's. This con could definitely be well worth the trip!

    Dude! Shannon Baksa-McRandall models as Mara Jade, Luke's new initial arch-nemisis post Vader, a character created by Timothy Zahn.

    You have to meet her. Not only is she pretty, but she's sharp and hilarious too. She's mid 30's and married with two kids, but she is a doll. She was hired by Decipher to be the Mara Jade in the SWCCG cards.

    I have to tell everyone my all time funniest Shannon Baksa story.

    One time, at Deciphercon, way back in the year 2000, I was the last in line to get autographs. I have my copy of SWCCG Mara Jade, the Emperor's Hand, in my mitts. I get up there to the table, and she's beautiful, poised, but totally frazzled.
    I asked if there was anything wrong.

    "I've just been hit on by 800 guys all 10 years younger that I am, " she said plaintively. She then went into full tilt boogie comic actress mode on me, wrist on brow and everything.

    "All I ever wanted out of life (she starts to fake sniffling) ...was just to own this tiny little sewing shop... ( fake sob)... nestled in the pines....(looks off into the distance with sniffle). A place where I could live my life out in peace... GAAH!!!! (primal scream)....

    All the time she was faking it, you could tell she was diggin' on it all. She loved the attention, but her little faux tirade was played for laughs and it had me in stitches.
