My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. You don't have to figure it all out at once.
Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?
A. Becky Sharp in Vanity Fair. She's a sympathetic villain, kind of how Elizabeth Bennet is an imperfect heroine. I like characters who are somewhere in the middle.
Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?
A. A cat. They have an unlimited capacity to entertain themselves, and they never have insomnia.
Q. What is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?
Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?
A. It would be amazing to meet William Shakespeare. And I'd probably say something brilliant like, "Um, excuse me, um, uh, could I please (gasp) have your autograph?"
