My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. A little bit of nonsense goes a long way.

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. I've had the same two best friends since sixth grade, and in the words of Mandy, they are two of my "most favorite people in the world, at least most of the time."

Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. Since I've had teeth, my favorite meal has been noodles with butter, no parsley. To this day, if I don't eat pasta multiple times a week, I get twitchy (and I still hate parsley).

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. Getting a sunburn. I should really own stock in sunblock companies.

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. Ann M. Martin, because her Baby-Sitters Club series made me want to be a writer.
