Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. I have always had a ridiculous fear that I will walk into the bathroom one morning and find a python in my toilet. (This happens more frequently than you would care to believe, although--thank goodness--not yet to me).

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

A. Baking.

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

A. I desperately want to visit the Galapagos, and meet some giant tortoises.

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

A. I'd like to have a perfect sense of direction. I could get lost with a GPS strapped to my arm.
