Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. Stupid people who think they are intelligent.

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

A. Mentoring the youth.

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. That my heart allows me to be equally compassionate about a perfect stranger and a best friend. The downside is that people often mistake kindness for weakness.
