Author Revealed

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. Shakespeare, because I've written so much about him.

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. Falling from a great height and going splat. Or giving parties. The latter usually turn out well. The former, probably not.

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. My family and children. They are their own greatest achievement, but my greatest happiness.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?

A. So many to choose from. Severus Snape, because he's so complex, much more interesting than Voldemort. Richardson's Lovelace in CLARISSA, both hero and villain.
