Meet Novelist Christi Phillips
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. What is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?
A. Reading. And spending time with my husband.
Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?
A. "Just." It sneaks into the first draft somehow, and I have to strike it out during revisions. It's just meaningless. See?
Q. What’s your fantasy profession?
A. Songwriter. I'm envious of anyone who can earn a living by writing something so short.
