Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Oh, I don't have a motto, and I don't read maxim ;) Really, life is too fluid for me to pick one motto and stick to it. I adapt.

Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. You're looking at it.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?

A. I loved Elphie in Wicked, but her villainy was revealed as compassion. I like that, the complexity. No one's ever 100% good or bad.

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. You'd have to ask the people around me. I write more than I talk.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

A. I'm a big fan of Kaye from Tithe.
