Claire Cook
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

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

Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. Trader Joe’s organic popcorn with olive oil.

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. P.T. Barnum. I’m a direct descendant, and by the way, he did not say, “There’s a sucker born every minute.” He said, “There’s a customer born every minute.” I have updated that to, “There’s a reader born every minute.”

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. Mean people

Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?

A. I never play favorites. I just can’t. I’d feel too sorry for the songs I didn’t pick.
