Róisín LoughranName: Róisín Loughran

Academic Philosophy:
This is Prof. Róisín’s third time as merchandise officer for the IDWCon so you can be sure she’s cracked it by now (absolutely, 100%). In recent years Róisín made the startling discovery that people are happy when they get chocolate. Subsequently, she discovered that giving people chocolate to make them happy makes her happy. Come and say hello to Prof. Róisín at the Merchandise stall where she and her handsome hubby have procured lots of nice things for you to peruse. If you’re nice to her, she’ll give you some chocolate. If you’re not nice to her, she may initially hold out on giving you chocolate but probably give in and offer you some anyway, because she knows you didn’t mean it.
