Videos related to this author
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. If not now, when?
Q. What’s your fantasy profession?
A. Writer. I can’t believe how lucky I am to be doing this
Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?
A. I like being myself.
Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?
A. I have so many of these that my propensity for pet peeves might qualify as one of my greatest flaws: bad drivers, people who cut in line or who save places for their 20 closest friends, people who are rude to waiters, people who are just rude, people who unwrap candies during concerts...lots of candies...endless candies, people who aren't nice to their dogs (While I was rewriting, during weeks of torrential rain, there was a gorgeous, sad golden retriever abandoned on the hill behind my house. We couldn't lure her into our house, but our neighbors finally caught her and rescued her and love her madly. But I actually wanted to hunt down her former owners and drop them off somewhere in the rainy wilderness.), people who park in two parking spaces, and all forms of snootiness.
Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?
A. Painting! It kills me that I can't illustrate my own picture books. (I mean, I could, but they'd be really bad and nobody would publish them.)
