My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. My newest one: All our secrets are the same.
Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?
A. Either drawing -- I can barely draw a stick figure -- or a decent sense of direction (which is a talent as far as I'm concerned).
Q. What’s your greatest fear?
A. Snakes. If you read Dirty Secret, you'll understand why.
Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?
A. Sushi. Or Mexican. Or Italian. I love food too much to eat only one thing.
Q. What were your previous occupations?
A. I've been a fish-gutter in Alaska (really!); a waitress in Minneapolis; a record store clerk and an online producer in San Francisco; and a copy editor, freelance writer, and writing teacher in New York.
