J. M. Bedell
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?

A. The Grinch.

Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. I'd like to own my own business. A little bookstore/coffeeshop/artsy place where people hang out and discuss life.

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. I'm easily discouraged. It take a lot of emotional effort for me to keep writing, day after day, when the rewards seem to come so infrequently.
