Some Excerpts

When did you start writing fanfiction?

I was eleven years old, and my first fandom is Degrassi Jr. High. After that, I didn't write fanfiction again until HP.

Would you agree that fanfiction is a genre dominated by women, and if so, why do you think it's so?

Most of the people I've encountered at FA and other fandom arenas are women. Why? I'm not sure. Fandoms have always been female-dominated. Maybe women are more creative than men? Maybe it's the lack of strong female characters in a lot of shows that have big fandoms? Honestly, I'm not sure.

This is a site devoted to antagonists. Could you reveal us your favourite Mr. Bad Guy?

Do you mean in HP, or just in general? My favorite HP bad guy is most definitely Lucius Malfoy, but in general I think it's Archie from THE CHOCOLATE WAR by Robert Cormier.
