Why did you choose your pen name?It's the main character in Marion Zimmer Bradleys novel The Forrest House. Eilan is a very strong woman who is willing to do everything she has to do. In a way, I'd like to be like her...
When did you start writing fanfiction?In November 2000 I think, I was 16, and I started writing only one week after I read my first fanfic. It was crap...
Would you agree that fanfiction is a genre dominated by women, and if so, why do you think it's so?Fanfiction is definitely dominated by women. I suppose it's a different approach to literature. Women want to know 'what happens if...', whilst men are generally happy with how it's done by professionals.
This is a site devoted to antagonists. Could you reveal us your favourite Mr. Bad Guy?It began with my 'love' for Alex Krycek who is Mulder's antagonist on The X-Files. With Harry Potter, my main fandom these days, I *love* Tom Riddle and Lucius Malfoy, and to some extent Peter Pettigrew. They are all complex characters and I like to think about why they 'went bad'.
