My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Claire Cook
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Karma is a boomerang. (One of my characters said it first!)

Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?

A. I always skip the scary pages.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. Perfectly fleeting.

Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?

A. I’d love to be a songwriter. I used to teach the Aerosmith kids, and right around the time my first novel came out, I had this great conversation with Steven Tyler. He wanted to know how I could write a whole novel, and I said that if I could say it in a song, I wouldn’t have to.

Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?

A. For me, the gift of midlife is that I’m finally being exactly who I really am. There’s great power in that.
