Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Create as much as possible, love deeply, and enjoy every moment.

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. At some point, someone figured out that sun would come up every day, even without all the dancing and singing. It would have to be that guy.

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. If we are talking historical literary character, I'd go with The Fool, from King Lear. This might be partially due to loving the book Fool by Christopher Moore, but I loved Lear when I studied it in college and always wondered about this character. He seems smart and put together, but he follows this raving mad man around the countryside. I'd want to know why and what he got out of it.

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. My kids.

Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. Battle mage.
