My Life in 8 Words
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. 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 do you regret most?
A. Meeting one of my literary heroes -- one of the men whose work made me think that I could become a writer, too. He turned out to be a horrible sexist who claimed to never read books by women. I'm still getting over that one.
Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?
A. I think I'd be me, only maybe a little younger and better-looking.
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.
