Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Letitia Slighcarp from "The Wolves of Willoughby Chase."
Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?
A. I would love to meet Jane Austen, but I'd be far too awed to say anything to her. Plus, if I did, I'm pretty sure she'd find some reason to skewer me in her next novel. After all, this is the woman who once wrote, "For what do we live, but to make sport for our neighbors and laugh at them in our turn?"
Q. What is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?
A. That would be eating.
Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?
