We began this imprint to provide an opportunity for new and aspiring female writers to have their voices heard and to see their work professionally published.

2013 is the “Year of the Fangirl” and to celebrate, Her Universe™ has been spotlighting a different fangirl every day on HerUniverse.com showing their diversity, dreams and interests. Geek Girls are one of the fastest growing and important segments of the sci-fi/fantasy audience and can be found in every walk of life, including the entertainment business. Now, in four exclusive video segments produced in cooperation with Hasbro Studios and available to watch on HerUniverse.com, Ashley Eckstein, Founder of Her Universe, is highlighting and interviewing the amazing “professional fangirls” behind the award winning animated series, Transformers Prime, produced by Hasbro Studios which airs on the HUB network in the U.S. and is seen in over 180 countries. From voice talent to producing, writing, editing and design these women are “prime” examples of how female fans can achieve their dreams and create worlds of imagination for others to enjoy.

Here’s how awesomely cool Ashley Eckstein is: She is one of the busiest people on the planet, but somehow, she managed to give us an interview on Sunday Afternoon, after only meeting her for the first time on the previous Friday Night.
It was a real pleasure to meet Ashley and her husband David in New York City at the “The Mary Sue/Her Universe” Party on the Friday Night of New York Comic Con Weekend. Ashley was cosplaying as a Star Trek Zombie (Spock Hoodie), so she wasn’t immediately recognizable.
