Amanda Palmer of the Dresden Dolls and writer Neil Gaiman have announced their engagement.

Palmer’s mother, Kathy Mockett, said the couple met about a year and a half ago when they collaborated on Palmer’s book, “Who Killed Amanda Palmer.” The book was filled primarily with photos, but Palmer needed a writer to add text, and a friend suggested Gaiman.

“It’s really nice to be able to welcome Neil into our family,” Mockett said in an interview with Blast. “We feel very comfortable and happy with him.”

Mockett also said she’s happy to have a British man come into the family because her father was British. But of course, it’s not about nationality.

“As the mom, I find Neil and Amanda very compatable and I’m very happy about that,” Mockett said. “I find Neil to be kind and gentle, and I think those are maybe two of the best qualities anyone can have.”

Palmer and Gaiman both have very busy schedules — Palmer will be traveling for months and might be in a play that will keep her booked until September — so the wedding is planned for sometime in 2011.

    Amanda Palmer and Neil Gaiman are Scientologists. Neil Gaiman just has donated $35,000.00 to Scientology AGAIN (November 2009), according to the Cornerstone Newsletter, and has been named a Scientology Founding Patron. Gaiman and Palmer are working as a team, with the Scientology seal of approval. They got paired up to make money, that’s why their relationship was “launched” with pictures, a soundtrack, a self published vanity book of bloody snuff porn pictures of Palmer. These two idiots seem to take a photographer where ever they go to catch every “intimate” moment. What a pair of losers.

      Stop whining, if you’re so great why don’t YOU do something productive like…GET A LIFE! I’m sure your parents are so proud of you…for being a vacuous soul that you are. You’re no different from religious fundamentalists…hypocrite.

        Shut up Palmer, you idiot. Your Scientology contract partner Gaiman just gave the clams another $500,000.00 in 2010 through his business partner Mary Gaiman while you mock people with disabilities, and think giving product placement money to the KKK is “ironic.” Stop trolling the web and writing your own press. Your forgettable contributions to this world are mutilation porn photos and shitty “music.” You are a talentless hack.

    There is something really creepy about Gaiman and Palmer. They publicize their relationship and spend all their time on twitter. I hate being played and these two jerks seem to play the public.

    Neil Gaiman is a Scientologist and is underwriting Scientology. The Scientologists list Neil Gaiman him in the Cornerstone Newsletter along with Mary Gaiman, as contributing $35,000.00 in 2009. Being listed in the Cornerstone Newsletter means you are in good-standing with the cult.

    In 2010, Mary Gaiman was awarded the “Gold Humanitarian Award” for her contribution of $500,000.00 to Scientology. This is significant because Mary Gaiman continues to be Neil Gaiman’s business partner in The Blank Corporation, which is now Neil Gaiman’s Scientology front and how he pays the cult.

    Gaiman is also the “Vitamin Heir” of Scientology. The Gaiman family owns G&G Vitamins which reaps 6 million a year from selling The Purification Rundown Vitamins.

    Gaiman’s two sisters, Claire Edwards and Lizzie Calciole are not just high-ranking Scientologists, they are the head of RECRUITING and the head of Wealden House, the Scientology stronghold in East Grinstead. These two cannot associate with Neil unless he is in good standing.

    Amanda Palmer would not be allowed anywhere near this royal family of Scientology unless she was also a Scientologist.

      Palmer, your pathetic ghetto talk is so transparent. You are deeply stupid, crude and vulgar and you have no talent.

      Shut up Palmer. Do you ever get sick of obsessing on yourself? The sad thing is, Neil hasn’t told you the truth. He’s lied about everything. You’re just a pawn. A pathetic, talentless pawn.

      Shut up Palmer. Do you ever get sick of trolling your own threads? The sad thing is, Neil hasn’t told I you the truth. He’s a lying scumbag and you’re a pathetic pawn in his struggle to get the g&g money.

    Charlotte is Amanda Palmer, patrolling the web with her stupid racist comments to muddy the water. Amanda Palmer, you are pathetic, transparent and so deeply moronic, I’m amazed you got this far before you outing yourself. I thought you were just talentless, now I know it’s much worse, you’re mentally stunted and can’t learn.

    Amanda’s whatever she needs to be at the moment to get her teeth into the next rung of the ladder. Too bad your a talentless hag, Palmer.
