Author Revealed

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. I think I'd like to meet Virginia Woolf and Jane Austen. I'd tell them that their work is still loved and revered--more now than it was during their lifetimes, in fact. Perhaps knowing this would make the unhappiness in their lives a little easier to bear.

Q. What 3 personal qualities are most important to you?

A. A sense of humor, an open mind, and a strong work ethic--I admire people who try to do their best, no matter what they're doing.

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. Which living person do you most admire?

A. Barack and Michelle Obama.
