Meet Novelist Christi Phillips
Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?
A. My pet, actually. I have a 18 lb, white long-haired cat, Clarence, who apparently was Born to Shed. When he's happy, he drools. We're not certain that he has any redeeming qualities.
Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?
A. Swimming in the warm, clear South Pacific right outside my luxurious Bora Bora bungalow.
Q. What’s your best quality?
A. Curiosity. I'm not afraid of new things, because I love to learn.
Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?
A. "Just." It sneaks into the first draft somehow, and I have to strike it out during revisions. It's just meaningless. See?
