Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Carpe Vitam -- Seize Life

Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?

A. Swinging in a hammock on the beach with my husband on the island of Kauai, Hawaii, or snuggling under a blanket next to a fire in a ski chateau in the Alps.

Q. What do you regret most?

A. Turning down an in-person interview with Johnny Cash to go out on a date to see a Semisonic concert. This happened in 1996 or 1997, and I think even the members of Semisonic would agree I made the wrong choice.

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. Oh wow, this is a hard question. Maybe Lord Byron? He surrounded himself with people he loved and went on many spectacular adventures.

Q. What is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?

A. Stand up comedy
