Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Focus on your goal, and just keep plodding towards it with blinders on.

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

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

A. Going to the theater, in New York or London.

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

Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?

A. My dog Boo, because she gets away with murder, and all she needs to do all day is eat and sleep.
