Apparently GoodReads doesn't inform authors when a question has been asked. Odd.

At any rate, I wanted to say thank you very much for your kind note, and I am really glad that Karl's name gave you as much glee as it did to me. I had a fantastic time sneaking in Easter Eggs throughout the whole series.

It's been a lot of fun.

Thank you again for your lovely note!

“Heroes can save the world, but villains can change it.”
J. M. Frey

“But in fanfiction anything was fair game. If we could turn protagonists into vampires, bounty hunters, or elves, we could sure as heck turn them homosexual, bisexual, asexual or any ot he wonderful, beautiful in-betweens. Characters slid all over the rainbow. And through fanfiction I learned about identities like transgendered, genderfluid, and demisexual.”
J.M. Frey, The Secret Loves of Geek Girls

“My first crush was a sarcastic know-it-all Immortal named Methos, a character from Highlander. To this day I am convinced he is my perfect soulmate. And the focus of my sexual awakening. Lots of people cite the boiler room scene from My So-Called Life, Jareth in Labyrinth, Colin Firth in Pride & Prejudice, or any/all members of the Fellowship of the Ring. But mine happened when Methos rolled out of bed in nothing but boxers to defend his life with a Roman short sword. Unf.”

“The worst thing a kid can say about homework is that it is too hard. The worst thing a kid can say about a game is it's too easy.”
Henry Jenkins

“...Fan fiction is a way of the culture repairing the damage done in a system where contemporary myths are owned by corporations instead of owned by the folk.”
Henry Jenkins

“Fandom, after all, is born of a balance between fascination and frustration: if media content didn't fascinate us, there would be no desire to engage with it; but if it didn't frustrate us on some level, there would be no drive to rewrite or remake it.”
Henry Jenkins, Convergence Culture: Where Old and New Media Collide

Wendy Hi! I just wanted to thank you again for alerting me to the re-release of Sailor Moon. I gave volume 1 to Ivy for Christmas and we have been reading through it every night. :-)
