1. Likes lists. Obviously.

2. Christian, conservative.

3. English major. Ex-music major.

4. Minnesotan. From large family. Likes snow, ya sure, you betcha. And ketchup is spicy (though I love barbeque sauce).

5. Favorite novels: Emma, by Jane Austen; Till We Have Faces, by C. S. Lewis, The Silmarillion, by J. R. R. Tolkien.

6. Comics fan. Love Bryan Q. Miller's Batgirl and Smallville Season 11, Joss Whedon, John Cassaday, and Laura Martin's Astonishing X-men, Sean McKeever, Takeshi Miyazawa, and Christina Strain's Spider-man Loves Mary Jane, Bendis's Ultimate Spider-man before Ultimatum (especially during Bagley's run), miss the Star Wars: X Wing Rogue Squadron series, Greg Rucka (Wonder Woman, Checkmate, Batman/Huntress: Cry for Blood, Punisher, Lazarus), and Birds of Prey (only the first Dixon/Simone/McKeever run, excluding Bedard). Hate One More Day/One Moment in Time with a fiery burning passion, and grateful to Spencer for moving in the right direction. Also not a fan of the n52, but the resurgance of Steph softened me a bit, and Rebirth did a lot more to win me over. Do like a couple of indie type things - Asterios Polyp by David Mazzucelli and Fun Home by Alison Bechdel. Collecting anything with Steph in it.

7. Huge BBC classic drama fan - from Andrew Davies's Jane Austen and Charles Dickens adaptations (especially Sense and Sensibility 2008 and Litle Dorrit), and Sandy Welch (her Jane Eyre 2006 and Emma 2009 are excellent, though imperfect). The new Emma starring Anya Taylor-Joy is amazing.

8. Because of personal history with fandom, hates Harry Potter, but quite enjoys Twilight. Don't make any claims of quality for either.

9. Love genre fiction, from military sci-fi (Orson Scott Card, Robert A. Heinlein, John Scalzi, Aaron Allston, Timothy Zahn, Elizabeth Moon) to mystery (Sherlock Holmes - especially the Jeremy Brett series and Elementary, Dorothy Sayers, P. D. James, early Laurie R. King), to fantasy - high, low, and of course urban (Tamora Pierce, Gillian Bradshaw, Ursula LeGuin, Robin McKinley, Mary Robinette Kowal, Seanan McGuire, Megan Whalen Turner, Shannon Hale, J. R. R. and Christopher Tolkien). Also quite fond of capepunk (Marion G. Harmon, Brandon Sanderson, Steven Gould).
