Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?
A. Procrastination. I don't mind it in others, but my own procrastination drives me bonkers.
Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?
A. Talent, or superpower? I'd like the power of transport -- click my heels and I'm there. More realistically, I wish I had more of a talent for zingers and impressions. Sadly, the only accent I can do is mine.
Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?
A. At one point I had to go through my manuscript and cut out the word "lovely." I think I'd used it like 133 times or something outrageous like that. What can I say, there are a lot of lovely things in this world.
Q. What’s your greatest fear?
A. Maybe not my biggest but certainly my most frequent is a terror related to inadequate computer backup. I live in fear of losing work.
