Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Life owes me nothing, no matter how hard I work. Whatever good comes to me in the end is simply a gift and a blessing.
Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?
A. Sitting down with a cup of coffee at sunrise every morning to write exactly what I want to write and to be worried about nothing in that moment except how to make the words sing. Life is too complicated to let this happen very often, but sometimes it all comes together and my god is it magic and does it ever make me happy.
Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?
A. I suppose anywhere that's warm and where there's a white beach that runs along a blue sea. In Minnesota in winter, that always sounds lovely.
Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?
A. Professor Moriarity
Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?
A. Physically, my blue eyes and my beard.
