Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. I believe in science, discovery, adventure and wonder. Also? Naps.

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

A. Reading. I read a lot--in fact, I'm fairly certain that purchasing that e-reader has made me a bonafide e-book junkie.

Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?

A. I would love to be able to *really* play the piano.

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. You know how most people think they are reincarnated from some famous historical figure? I can tell you now that if there is reincarnation, I am the karmic ancestor of some no-name scullery maid. It's the only explanation for the state of my house.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

A. There is no one who can match Scarlett O'Hara. She's my favorite.
