Thanks, Virginia, but the name of the character is Caitlyn, says my wife, and Caitlyn she shall remain! (And it’s not like we’re financing our retirement on the royalties; actually, even if sales had stayed at the initial rate we still wouldn’t be showing a profit for the entire project, since neither of us can draw so we had to hire an illustrator. Doncha love self-publishing?) Anyway, these things have a way of coming back around. Look at the name Bruce; at one point it was considered so effeminate that the TV show Hulk had David Banner instead of Bruce Banner. And these days Bruce is just another name, as in Bruce Wayne, or Bruce Willis, or Bruce… um, Jenner. (Hey, Violet , any stats on Bruce?)
