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 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 anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?
A. Cape Cod, on a perfect sunny July afternoon, paddling my kayak through the salt marsh with my daughters, looking for clams.
Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?
A. I'm usually smiling.
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.
