Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Every experience, good or bad, is a priceless collector's item.

Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?

A. I absolutely can't answer this question. My favorite songs change every year. One that has consistently moved me for a long time, though, is "Let Down" by Radiohead.

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

A. Assuming you mean occupation as in an activity, not a job, I'd have to say drinking good beer with good people is hard to beat.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

A. Daniel Plainview.

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. I think too much. Sometimes it's a struggle to live in the moment. Also, my cheeks get really red when I drink.
