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.
Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?
A. I'd love to spend a few afternoons having tea with Flannery O'Connor. Hopefully, I'd get off the hook without saying much and she'd talk and talk.
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.
