'Shadow Fall' by Laura Griffin
Q. What is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?
A. When I'm not writing, I love to read--newspapers, magazines, books. Actually, I have a very expensive book habit. And, maybe because I have so many author friends, I can't bring myself to buy books used, so it really adds up.
Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?
A. I would love to be able to play a musical instrument. And as long as this is fantasy, why not the violin? I saw a violin concert once that brought tears to my eyes.
Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?
A. chocolate pecan pie
Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?
A. I think happiness is doing what you want to do, not what you have to do. And I think very few people are lucky enough to do that.
