Carly Anne West
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. The day I stop learning is the day I throw in the towel.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

A. I love it when the line between hero and villain, good and bad, and evil and what-the? is blurry. The fawn from Pan's Labyrinth is a perfect example. I was suspicious until the end, and even then I wasn't quite sure. I love that!

Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?

A. In front of a fireplace reading!

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

A. I suppose I'd love to meet Holden Caulfield, and I'd tell him it gets better, and that what he's feeling isn't imagined.

Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. I sometimes dream I'm a librarian. I love the smell of a library.
