Carmen Rodrigues
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Improbable? Possibly. But impossible? Now that's a whole other story.

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

A. Daydreaming, seriously.

Q. What do you regret most?

A. Taking the social dynamics of high school way too seriously when I should have been studying.

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

A. I don't know where I would be but who would I be with? Now, that's the question. So, picture this: me, a comfy couch, someone I love, light streaming through the windows, flowers on the table, and good conversation. Ah, happiness.

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. That Carmen Rodrigues girl. I hear she's pretty cool and looks a lot like me.
