    Hi. I'm the "someone named Matt Thorn" who wrote the blurb about Est Em (and translated the book). I'm glad you liked the book. Est Em is a former student and dear friend of mine, and, yes, she is enormously talented. When she was a student, she did a wide variety of work, very little of which would fit into a mainstream manga magazine. Basically, she was recruited to do yaoi (while still a student) because she draws gorgeous men. She has three yaoi volumes out in Japanese, and garnered enough critical praise to be scouted by an excellent non-yaoi women's manga magazine, "Feel Young." Her first story appeared in the December issue. Hopefully it will be the first of many, and someday I can translate a volume of her non-yaoi work.
