This Side of Salvation by Jeri Smith-Ready

My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What do you regret most?

A. Not much. I’ve made a ton of mistakes, but they’ve all led me to this point. But I often regret not bringing a map with me in the car.

Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. Novelist! I can’t imagine anything better than this. Though I think it would be fun to drive a Zamboni or operate a forklift.

Q. What is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?

A. Playing Wii Fit. I’ve always hated exercise with a passion, but I love video games, and I love beating my husband’s scores, so it’s super motivating.

Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?

A. It would be cool to be a cat for a while. I’d get to stay up all night, see in the dark, get fed and petted for doing pretty much nothing.
