Author Revealed

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. Napoleon. Nah, just kidding.

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

A. Reading. And spending time with my husband.

Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. Songwriter. I'm envious of anyone who can earn a living by writing something so short.

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

A. I think I'd like to meet Virginia Woolf and Jane Austen. I'd tell them that their work is still loved and revered--more now than it was during their lifetimes, in fact. Perhaps knowing this would make the unhappiness in their lives a little easier to bear.
