My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

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 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. What’s your greatest fear?

A. For some reason, I have a real phobia about rolling down a hill backward in a car. No idea where that came from, but it made driving in San Francisco a challenge.

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’s your fantasy profession?

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