About The Author
The author and owner of Snark Wars is a thirtysomething professional nerd. She has been a Star Wars fan since her first original trilogy viewing in the late 1980s. Her first in-theater Star Wars experience was The Phantom Menace, and she still aspires to be a teenage warrior queen who gets to hang out with young, handsome Obi-Wan. She lives in the United States with her children and husband.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why does this site exist?
A: To compel people to invest hours of their lives reading my thoughts about Obi-Wan’s tragic life, obviously. OK, fine, serious answer: I wrote it, really, because…I wanted to read it. I’ve joked that if I was the only person reading it, I’d probably still be doing it, and it’s…not entirely untrue.
A lot of the Star Wars Discourse out there seemed so serious, and relatively joyless (or mean-spirited), and to me Star Wars is just…silly. It makes me and my family happy (well, and extremely sad, but that’s the idea.) I often joke that I take not taking Star Wars seriously very seriously, so that’s why I made the site. (That, and I get a huge kick out of making people laugh.)
Q: How can I contact you?
A: You can email me at snarkwars ( at ) gmail dot com.
Q: Who’s your favorite Star Wars character?
A: Just kidding. No one ever asks me this.
Q: Do you have an update schedule?
A: No. I usually post at least once a week, but it’s sometimes slightly more or less. If you would like to be notified when I post something new, you can subscribe to Snark Wars through the subscription button on the right-hand side of the site, or you can follow me on Twitter.
Q: Which recaps take the longest? (aka “Why is that one thing taking you so long?”)
A: TCW and Rebels episodes actually take me the longest to finish, on average, in part because I find they generally end up a lot more image-heavy.
In reality, though, none of my recaps take all that long to write. It’s more a matter of finding the spare time actually sit down and write them, given Real Life and whatnot.
Q: Was that one thing you wrote a song lyric/title?
A: Most likely. I am a gigantic British rock/pop dweeb, and it’s seeped into my work here.
Q: Have you ever seen this Star Wars parody I found?
A: Maybe! If you find something funny you’d like to share with me, you’re welcome to email me about it. (I get a LOT of inquiries about LEGO Star Wars because the people writing for it seem to share my sense of humor. For the record, I do love LEGO Star Wars dearly.)
Q: Are you ever gonna recap [whatever]?
A: Maybe! I have tons and tons of in-progress recaps. If you have a specific request, email it to me. I can’t promise I can do it, but I do take reader feedback into account when deciding what to publish next.
Q: Do you take guest submissions?
A: At this time, I am not accepting recap submissions from other authors, and I do not currently have plans to.
Q: Do you make money from this?
A: Nope. Snark Wars is a true labor of nerdy love and I provide it to the Star Wars fandom at no cost to them. 😉 I do not sell advertising space, etc.
