PHILADELPHIA FREE LIBRARY
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. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?
A. I can sing adequately, but if I could, I'd love to be really, really good. Good enough to take it on the road.
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. 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 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.
