My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. The day I stop learning is the day I throw in the towel.

Q. What is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?

A. I love to read (of course), and I love movies. And eating. And traveling.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

A. I love it when the line between hero and villain, good and bad, and evil and what-the? is blurry. The fawn from Pan's Labyrinth is a perfect example. I was suspicious until the end, and even then I wasn't quite sure. I love that!

Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?

A. Oh, yeah, I can't narrow it down to five. Why don't I pick 5 artists instead? Anything by Paul Simon, Radiohead, Jack White, Ryan Adams, The Killers, Cyndi Lauper, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, The Flaming Lips ... Whoops! More than 5!

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. For some reason, I have a real phobia about rolling down a hill backward in a car. No idea where that came from, but it made driving in San Francisco a challenge.
