After working for a college magazine and then Flagpole, Athens' music magazine, Cybele Lange spent over a decade working on various IT jobs in the Atlanta and Athens area. She's been a stay at home mom for eight years and has been able to indulge her love of books, movies, and television while ignoring her child and avoiding housework. Cybele was hooked on Downton Abbey from the first showing and has been fantasizing about a houseful of servants ever since.
