I'm only aware of Cassandra Clare through her work in fanfiction as Cassandra Claire, and I'm only aware of the fanfiction due the plagiarism controversy, which had cropped up in one of my book-drama feeds.
While I don't really feel one way or the other for her fanworks (I never read them), I don't particularly like how Clare/Claire handled the plagiarism allegations and fallout. The odd professionally done short story of hers I have read ([b:Turn the Other Chick|638396|Turn the Other Chick (Chicks in Chainmail, #5)|Esther M. Friesner|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1347361669s/638396.jpg|2706]) left me mainly with a sense of Oh, it's by that Clare/Claire woman
disappointment. I'll pass on reading her novels. Influencing website:
