Author Revealed

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

A. I think it'd be fun to pick Dante Alighieri's brain.

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. In grad school people thought I used the word "melee" too often. I respectfully disagree.

Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. Food.

Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?

A. I could never choose just five. I'll stick with the Beatles, Grateful Dead, and Bob Dylan if pressed, but that just seems silly.
