Meet Novelist Christi Phillips
Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?
A. Musical talent. I'm learning to play the guitar, and it's quite obvious that I'm not naturally gifted. But I think it's important to balance work with play, to do something for fun that you don't necessarily have to be good at.
Q. What do you regret most?
A. That I didn't start writing novels sooner.
Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?
A. My pet, actually. I have a 18 lb, white long-haired cat, Clarence, who apparently was Born to Shed. When he's happy, he drools. We're not certain that he has any redeeming qualities.
Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?
