My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Karma is a boomerang. (One of my characters said it first!)
Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?
A. I always skip the historical questions, too.
Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?
A. Nancy Drew
Q. What’s your greatest fear?
A. That I’m still a bartender and I can’t remember where this drink should go. Oh, wait, that's the recurring nightmare.
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.
