My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Can't Hurt To Try It. Unless We're Talking Sword Juggling. Or Spam.

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. Just and really. Sometimes it fits with the voice of the character, but I think that might just be make making really bad excuses. And I like to start sentences with "and". I have a friend who reads my early drafts and always points that out! And I just think that's really mean. Just kidding. Really.

Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?

A. Chili. I traveled for a year after college to 42 countries all on my own and on the very cheap (and it was amazing). The two continents I didn't get to were South America and Antarctica. So if I were in Chili right now, I'd have my feet on South American soil, while I tried to hitch a boat ride to Antarctica.

Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?

A. The ability to play the guitar. And sing on key. Possibly in Italian.

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. My great-grandmother.
