My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Get the words on the page.
Q. What’s your fantasy profession?
A. Writing is my fantasy profession. Given I've achieved it, maybe a singer. I audition for American Idol in the shower a lot.
Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?
A. I think maybe Lord Voldemordt is my favorite, but I'm always intrigued by the villains. My philosophy is that the villain is the hero of their own story and I try to write them accordingly.
Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?
A. That's hard. I loved Jamie Fraser from Outlander. Mr. Rochester from Jane Eyre. Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice. So many men to choose from!
Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?
A. I would like to meet Henry the VIII, back before he met Anne Boleyn. I want to meet the cultured, intelligent man he was, not the vengeful, resentful man he later became.
