  2. The Mary Sue Reviews and Interviews: Leila del Duca, Creator of Shutter

    Interview

    Shutter starts out with an innocuous enough backstory. Well, it even starts out with me looking at our proto-protagonist Kate Kristopher and thinking "You're wrong, kid. So wrong."

Hey man, no one said I had to be classy while I explored new frontiers, did they?
