Personal Quote:

Look at the Romans and the Greeks. Perfectly thriving, perfectly mature cultures with religion in it, and it didn't have a stigma against gay relationships. In fact, those were considered the true love relationships that were exalted. The relationship between a man and woman was more procreatory, but the true love that inspires you to write poetry was not that.

Trivia:

In her five years as staff writer and producer for the show Buffy the Vampire Slayer, she wrote a total of 23 episodes. She was the only staff writer (besides series creator Joss Whedon and executive producer Marti Noxon) to be credited on more than five episodes in a single season. (She was credited as writer on no less than 6 episodes in the show's seventh and final season.) See more »
