Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. If you're bored, you have no one to blame but yourself.

Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?

A. Too many to narrow down to five - it changes from day to day. I have over 2,000 CDs that span every musical genre.

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. Again, I'm not qualified to say. Maybe my intense curiousity about everything around me - that, in my opinion, is the most important quality a writer can have.

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. I know it sounds pretty obsessive, but I dread every having a moment in my life when I can't think of anything to do. I don't want to become an old man who has lost interest in everything.

Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. Mexican food.
