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. What 3 personal qualities are most important to you?

A. I think I'd have to say integrity, compassion, and a sense of humor.

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. I could care less what your age, gender, occupation or whatever is in life ... just hold the door open for the person behind you. It's polite.

Q. What is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?

A. I love to read (of course), and I love movies. And eating. And traveling.

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.
