Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

A. Favorite fictional hero... there are so many amazing men in fiction. Ha. But I might have to go with Holden Caulfield from Catcher in the Rye, even though he's kind of an anti-hero.

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. I think I'm most proud of the fact that I refused to give up on my dreams (of becoming an author) even when nothing was going my way and it seemed like a futile endeavor.

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. Thankfully, nothing. I don't stand out in a crowd. I much prefer to hang back and observe people.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?

A. Of all the villains in fiction, I might have to say Hannibal Lecter. The genius of Lecter is that Thomas Harris created a terrifying villain with a sympathetic side. Anyone who saw the movie Silence of the Lambs knows what I mean... Who wasn't rooting for Lecter to take out the psychologist at the end of the film?
