Some Excerpts

When did you start writing fanfiction?

In the summer of 2000, I wrote a cliché-ridden, badly shipped Harry Potter fifth year story, which I deleted in disgust this year, after a year of no fanfics. I got the "brilliant" idea to write a Tom Riddle story, and things just went from there!

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

Yes. I think women (with some memorable exceptions like Tolkien) just have better imagination. Honestly.

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

I love Tom Riddle, and in The Lord of the Rings, Gollum is awesome!
