Quick question...
does anybody actually know "Cassandra Claire", or know how to get in touch with her? Thanks. And... why didn't the folks who made "Ringers" just give her the stuff from the part of the movie where they used "The Very Secret Diaries"? Isn't that odd?

BTW, the reason I've been quiet lately is that I went down to Indy to put the house up for sale (finally!), and ended up taking a detour to Cincinnati on Sunday night to see 30STM (thanks to lilithlotr!), which was great, and driving back home on Monday... and feeling like hell the next two days! Really, I shouldn't have been that tired, but I felt like somebody drained all the blood out of me. Much better now, so no condolences necessary, but I really had intended to keep going with my concert picspam. Hopefully I'll do some more soon! Also looking for houses again. There were two I liked but didn't feel safe putting a bid on until I'd been at work longer and was ready to sell the house. Despite the fact that they stayed on the market an amazingly long time, they both went off the market right when I was ready. I check on them and - no luck. One has a contract on it; the other was withdrawn and the owner has decided to stay put. Darn! But I'll just take that to mean that I wasn't meant to have those houses and something better will come along.

Anyway, that's what's up! Hope everybody's enjoying the summer!

Cassandra Claire's journals are thegraybook and cassandraclare; her website is http://www.cassandraclare.com, with a contacts link coming soon. She lives in New York. All I know!

Keep us apprised of the house news. I wish for you a place as sweet as the last (if that's possible)!

I nearly met Cassie once, back in early 2002, but then the whole plagiarism thing started up and I pretty quickly distanced myself

It was already pretty well known by Spring 2002, so I got (and stayed) well away

Oh, dear... what's that all about?!

(love your icon... didn't realize until I read an article about the movie today that the "Mac" guy is the lead actor in "Accepted", the movie about a made-up university!)

Short version, she wrote this crazy-popular HP fanfic called the Draco Trilogy, and it turns out a good deal of it was lifted from other (non-HP sources), sometimes nearly word for word, without credit.

Oops.

That's among other things, I think. She seems to be something of a wank magnet.
