My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Well, my motto is Be Here Now. But I've taking my new my main character's motto for a test drive. "I'm Gigi Lane and you wish you were me." I think it's really helping my confidence!
Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?
A. Dude, get out! That's awesome, I'm so stoked!
Q. What is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?
A. Being a mom! I get paid in hugs and dance parties in the kitchen. Best job EVER!
Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?
A. would *love* to be able to sing. Have you ever read the book Bastard out of Carolina, by Dorothy Allison? If you haven't, you should, but it's for grown-ups and it deals with some really painful, intense stuff, but it is one of my favorite books in the whole world. Anyway, the main character, a girl named Bone, describes her wish to be able to sing in the most beautiful, heart-breaking way, where you can just feel inside of you how badly she wants it. It's a most perfect, crushing description of want.
Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?
A. My voice! I've been told it's perfect for both cartoons and naughty phone calls.
