“The loneliest moment in someone’s life is when they are watching their whole world fall apart, and all they can do is stare blankly.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald

Jasper Fforde
“Reading, I had learned, was as creative a process as writing, sometimes more so.

Jasper Fforde, First Among Sequels

Jasper Fforde
“Fanfiction isn't copying - it's a celebration. One long party, from the first capital letter to the last full stop!”
Jasper Fforde, One of Our Thursdays Is Missing
