From Frozen Fandom to Frozen Fiction, a guest post by Frozen Polar Nights authors Mari Mancusi and Jen Calonita

We were fans first. And now we help build the world we love.

I’ll never forget the time I first saw Frozen. My daughter was two years old and it was her very first in-theater movie. She made it all the way to the “Let it Go” sequence and then had enough. We reluctantly headed home.

I went back the next day—by myself this time!—and instantly fell in love. And I’ve been a fan ever since. Cosplaying as Elsa at comic cons, belting out the songs car karaoke style, collecting Frozen limited edition dolls, and lurking on reddit or YouTube, eagerly gobbling up all the fan theories and Easter eggs.
