My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. "Don't pick it." My Mom told me that, and it applies to any number of situations.
Q. What is your greatest achievement?
A. I think I'm supposed to say something about my children or my books here, but honestly, any morning that I wake up and find that I've successfully charged the various electronic devices that I'll need, that's a good day.
Q. What’s your best quality?
A. I'm an excellent tipper, I know lots of dirty jokes, and I watch lots of bad reality TV. So if you're a struggling waitress who wants to talk about "America's Next Top Model," I'm your girl.
Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?
A. Linda Voss, from Susan Isaac's SHINING THROUGH, a secretary-turned-spy who saves the world and gets the guy.
Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?
A. That women's fiction is still -- still! -- considered less worthy than the stuff men writer. And that's if it's considered at all.
