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

A. Right where I am. I think we live in paradise aka, the Willamette Valley in Oregon!

Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?

A. The Grinch.

Q. What do you regret most?

A. That I didn't go to college before I got married and had kids. It took me 14 years to get my bachelor's degree, one or two classes at a time. I think I would have gone further in my writing career if I had started sooner.
