My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

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’s your fantasy profession?

A. Backup singer! I actually got to live the fantasy for a night when the Rock Bottom Remainders, an all-author supergroup, came to town, and I sang back-up on "Mustang Sally." I have no idea how I sounded, or even if my microphone was on, but I loved it, loved it, loved it.

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.

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

A. After meeting the horribly sexist literary hero, I think I've given up on wishing for future encounters with famous people.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?

A. Pennywise in Stephen King's IT. Seriously, if there's anything scarier than a killer clown, I don't even want to know about it.
