Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

A. Oh, man... Hamlet. Miles Vorkosigan. Any of Jane Austen's heroines.

Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?

A. That's like asking what's on your iPod. Gigs of music are on mine, and I change favorites all the time. If I'm writing at home, I usually play something that will help me focus on the emotion of the scene.

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. My accent, which is the remnant of a speech defect that was retrained by a man who had studied in London.

Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?

A. The talent for acquiring talents. (Talent Acquisition Tooth Fairy says, "Sorry, no fair.") OK, the ability to remember anything I read.
