Author Revealed

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 are your 5 favorite songs?

A. I would hate to limit it to five. See earlier entry, "Favorite Composers and Musical Artists."

Q. What do you regret most?

A. That I didn't start writing novels sooner.

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.
