Q. What’s your greatest fear?
A. Falling from a great height and going splat. Or giving parties. The latter usually turn out well. The former, probably not.
Q. What is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?
A. Thinking about writing. Reading... But I do a lot of things: garden, knit, do altered photography, make jewelry, sculpt things. I love to repair almost anything and I love going to yard sales. I usually have a basement full of chairs, and I even wrote a poem about reupholstering a chair.
Q. What’s your best quality?
A. I listen.
Q. What’s your fantasy profession?
A. Something where I work with my hands. I've actually been offered a job as an upholsterer.
