Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Leap and the net will appear.

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

A. Dancing

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. Being willing to leave a marriage that wasn't working and face the fallout. Is it weird that my biggest regret and greatest achievement is the same thing?

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. People who are indecisive. It drives me nuts when the server comes and the person I'm eating with hasn't yet chosen what they want to eat. Petty, huh?

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

A. I'd love to meet Henry the VIII and ask him "Did it ever occur to you that it might be YOUR problem?"
