Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. What I do best is drag other people into my fantasy world.

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. People who get off the escalator and IMMEDIATELY stop walking as they try to figure out which way to turn. Look, just move a few steps out of the way, then think it over. OTHERWISE I WILL CRASH INTO YOU.

Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. Dark chocolate. My days would not be many, as I would probably die quickly from a lack of nutrients. But they would be a great last few days.

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. "Efficacious." Like maybe if I say it a lot, then I will actually BE it!

Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. When I was little, I wanted to be a writer, actress, and singer. One out of three isn't bad, esp. considering that I can't sing.
