Author has written 6 stories for Chuck, and Veronica Mars.

Quotes that make me laugh and a few that make me think (even though I don’t think they’re supposed to):

"Oh, that's the sound she makes when she's speechless with geeker joy."-- Xander Harris about Willow Rosenberg during Buffy the Vampire Slayer Episode 2.11 “Ted”

“I just want to be absolutely sure! I mean, you see how picky I am about my shoes and they only go on my feet!”-- Cher Horowitz during Clueless

“Tact is just not saying true stuff. I'll pass.” --Cordelia chase during Buffy the Vampire Slayer Episode 2.18 “Killed by Death”

“there’s a finite number of people in the world and I’ve met all of them.” -- Betty during Dead Like Me Episode 1.05 “Reaping Havoc”

“People, are not snowflakes.” --Betty during Dead Like Me Episode 1.05 “Reaping Havoc” (about four lines after the last quote)

“Ainsi sera, groigne qui groinge” Anne Boleyn’s Motto for a few week of 1530 and 153. It roughly translates to “Grumble all you like, this is how it’s going to be.”

Why do evil queens in fantasy movies always dress in uncomfortable looking leather and corsets? If I was the ruler of a magical land, I would only wear sweats and ugg boots. -- Paraphrased from a review of the mini-series Tin Man (I haven't been able to find the article again, so unfortunately I can't directly quote or give proper credit, if you know where it is, I would greatly appreciate it if you would tell me.)

Favorite Books and Series:

The Harry Dresden Files by Jim Butcher

(Although I’ve fallen so in love with the characters I haven’t been able to read past book 10 “Small Favors”)

Thursday Next Series by Jasper FForde

(This is where my screen names comes from partially -- I actually didn’t really like Jane Eyre itself)

The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides

(The language in this book is so beautiful it sometimes feels more like poetry than prose. I once had a friend curse me for recommending it to her because she couldn’t stop reading it despite the fact that it was depressing the heck out of her.)

The Crystal Cave By Mary Stewart

(I loved the first and last parts of The Hollow Hills as well but found the middle boring. Like the Dresden files, I fell so in love with Merlin and Arthur in this I wasn’t able to bring myself to read the last two books in the “trilogy” and see their downfall.)

The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley

(See a Pattern?)

The Secret Garden by Frances Hogson Burnett

(I literally own this story in every possible hard copy form: The musical CD and tapes, two different versions on VHS, DVD, and, of course, the book.)

The Runners Up (in order of last read):

The Simon Canderous Novels by Anton Strout

The Pepper Martin Mysteries by Casey Daniels

The Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom Series by Julie Kenner

The Secret Diary of Anne Boleyn by Robin Maxwell along with its next two sequel/ prequels

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens

The Xanth Series (Books 1-13) by Piers Anthony

Last Books Read:

The Secret Diary of Elizabeth Tudor, Vampire Slayer (The Historical elements are surprisely well researched)

The Sherlockian by Graham Moore

Book of Secrets by Christ Roberson (I was surprisingly impressed by this book. It’s a hard enough thing to write an interesting story in a particular style, it’s another to write a noir novel with stories in 6 other styles embedded within it. This author manages it while still keeping the frame story interesting in its own right. As a middle ages buff I particularly liked the faux-medieval poem.)

Greywalker by Kat Richardson (Not one of my favorites so far, but most likely the author is going to go into the pool I draw from while waiting for the next book in one of my favorites series.)

Twelth Night by Shakespeare

Dead Waters by Anton Stout

Contested Will by James Shapiro

End of the Century by Chris Roberson (Epic, that is the only word for it. Three stories in three different time periods, that slowly managed to interweave and eventually blend together into one cohesive whole. While the end conclusion was a bit of a letdown, it still ties everything together and the story itself is satisfying. Be warned through, the majority of the characters have back stories (or front stories? There’s time travel, descendants and ancestors involved) found in Roberson’s other books. This was only the second book in his universe that I’ve read, and I was able to grasp everything eventually, but I still felt a bit like I was missing pieces at times. Given that the story (and characters) jump around in time, and this technically takes places both before and after most of his books I’m actually not sure if it was better to read this first, last, or in the middle but it’s worth a warning. )

Changes By Jim Butcher

Side Job by Jim Butcher

Dying Bites by D.D. Barant

Darcy's Story by Janet Aylmer

Current Book: How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe by Charles Yu

Favorite Superheroes (because you can’t choose just one):

Lamont Cranston (The Shadow)

Booster Gold

Peter Parker (Pre-Civil War)

Ted Kord (During and After his Birds of Prey run)

Tony Stark (I fell in love with the Iron Man Series during the Extremis story arc)

Favorite Comic Books:

Wolverine: The Origin (Just the Comic)

Superman: Secret Identity
