did you start collecting?
How many autograph's
do you currently have? and why don't you have scan's of all of them?
I have around 700 and counting right
now, hopefully someday I'll have the time to scan all of them but for now I'm just scanning my favorites.
autograph do you want the most?
So many!! Aubree Miller, Charisma Carpenter, Orlando Bloom, Jodie Foster,
Jessica Simpson, Sarah McLachlan, Maricia Cross, Eva Langoria, Natalie Gregory, Clive Owen, Ryan Gosling, Robert
DeNiro, Jack Nicholason, Stevie Nicks and I would kill for a Marilyn Monroe, Rex Harrison, Bette Davis or Audrey
Who is your favorite autograph so far?
Again I have many.... Mariah Carey,
Shirley Temple- Black, Michelle Pfieffer, Rose McGowan, Shannen Doherty, Heather Locklear, Neve Campbell, Drew Barrymore,
Johnny Depp, Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Paula Abdul, Gwen Stefani, Julianne Moore, Celine Dion, Michelle Branch, Leah
Andreone, Traci Lords, Juliette Lewis.... I'm going to stop because I could go on forever... I only write to actors who I
truly admire, so it's way to hard to pick a favorite.

What do I write in my letters? Can you show me an example?
I won't write an example letter because I think you should try and be original. If you're truly a
fan you should have lots to say anyways. Make sure you compliment on thier work and at the end ask them for thier autograph,
use please and thank you!!
How long should I expect to wait to recieve an autograph?
Have patience! A celebrity could take a month, a year or even longer! The
longest I've waited is almost 4 years, Megan Follows, so don't lose hope. I'd give it at least 6 months before writing
