Name That Judge!

This judge has been named! Look in the comments for the answer. And a new chance is coming Wednesday.

Well, Query Kombat is over. Life returns to normal. Or does it? That would be much too boring!

So to liven things up we're going to play a little game I call Name that Judge. There are 34 judges from Query Kombat, all with nicknames they used to vote. All are agented or published writers with experience in this business. 

Some have agreed to join me and give away a prize to whoever guesses their nickname. You can find their bios at Mike's blog, SC's blog, and my blog. (No, I'm not providing the links. Where's the fun in that? But look in the May archive.) I will provide the list of judge names.

This judge's nickname was The Trickster. And they have provided a few hints:

This judge has never seen snow
This judge loves Dogs
This judges is obsessed with Supernatural (but really the nickname should have given that away! :P)
And this judges enjoys collecting pens.

First one to correctly name this judge gets a query and first chapter critique from said judge! I'll put a time limit of five days on this, but hopefully we won't need to worry about such things.

Other rules. Let's see...

You don't have to have entered or been picked for Query Kombat to play. Anyone may try and Name That Judge. There will be other posts with fresh judges coming up soon. You may enter more than one Name That Judge post. Though to be fair, once you win, you might refrain from playing. You may only guess once on each post. You must leave a way to reach you--twitter handle or email address.
