Meet Novelist Christi Phillips
Q. With whom in history do you most identify?
A. Napoleon. Nah, just kidding.
Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?
A. I think I'd like to meet Virginia Woolf and Jane Austen. I'd tell them that their work is still loved and revered--more now than it was during their lifetimes, in fact. Perhaps knowing this would make the unhappiness in their lives a little easier to bear.
Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?
A. I would hate to limit it to five. See earlier entry, "Favorite Composers and Musical Artists."
Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?
A. "Just." It sneaks into the first draft somehow, and I have to strike it out during revisions. It's just meaningless. See?
