Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. "Writing is a socially acceptable form of schizophrenia."--E.L. Doctorow

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. I'm a little bulldog. Seriously, I'm quite determined when it comes to the things that are important to me. I'm dedicated to my close friends, I will work round the clock to turn a manuscript in, I will reach out to help emerging writers in whom I believe...you get the picture.

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

A. I have some thoughts about this--but they are for me to know and you to (maybe) find out!

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. It drives me bonkers when my fiance leaves his sneakers on the living room floor. I also can't stand excessive air-conditioning. I'm one of those annoying people who is always cold.

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. Some people say I'm funny. Also, I get very very tan in the summer.
