My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. "Don't pick it." My Mom told me that, and it applies to any number of situations.

Q. What do you regret most?

A. Meeting one of my literary heroes -- one of the men whose work made me think that I could become a writer, too. He turned out to be a horrible sexist who claimed to never read books by women. I'm still getting over that one.

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. After meeting the horribly sexist literary hero, I think I've given up on wishing for future encounters with famous people.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

A. Linda Voss, from Susan Isaac's SHINING THROUGH, a secretary-turned-spy who saves the world and gets the guy.

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. I'm an excellent tipper, I know lots of dirty jokes, and I watch lots of bad reality TV. So if you're a struggling waitress who wants to talk about "America's Next Top Model," I'm your girl.
