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 villain?

A. I guess that's the same answer as my favorite hero!

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. I'm not the only person in the world to wear glasses, and certainly not the only writer, but I'm, like, always wearing them. I tried contact lenses once and hated them. So I do everything in glasses. I once ran a marathon in glasses. It wasn't pretty, but at least I could see.

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. Corny as it sounds, I'm really proud of my little family unit. Oh, and publishing a book is tops on the list, too!

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.
