A lifelong fan, Morris is particularly interested in fanworks that honor the work of other fans and transform other fanworks, including remixes, podfic, recs, and other fan arts. She is a prolific creator and advocate of podfic; she built and maintains the Audiofic archive, providing a stable, permanent home for a constantly growing collection of podfic, and has conducted several podfic workshops. In addition to the Audiofic archive, Morris hosts and maintains websites for a number of other fans, moderates several ongoing communities and challenges, and participates in conventions and fandom-related conferences when she can.

Podfics

Of podfics read by general jinjur, thingswithwings said:

"jinjur is the undisputed god of podfic, the maintainer of the archive to which I have linked all through this recs set, and she's also an accomplished and enthusiastic reader herself. [...] She's another American lady, with those really great American As and Os on words like 'not' and 'bar' and 'sorry' and 'had' and 'Rodney' and 'obviously' and 'god.' I love her slightly-brash slightly-wry matter-of-fact reading voice.
She'll try to convince you that she's a reader of depressing epics, and while she does read depressing epics beaaaaauutifully [...] don't let her fool you; she has great comic timing and has read some brilliant comedy [...]. Basically, what I'm trying to say is that she's an amazing reader and that she's read practically every genre of fic that you can think of; I could survive for months on jinjur-read podfic alone. She's funny but not goofy, and emotional but not TOO serious; you really can't go wrong with her stuff."[3]
