Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. Those biscuit cans that have you press a spoon along the dotted line or pull a strip of paper until it opens in your face with a POP!!!

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

A. I'm incredibly grateful to be filling out an author questionnaire for Simon & Schuster, so I'd be in the exact spot I'm in right now~ in my kitchen, avoiding dish duty and typing out this answer.
