My Life in 8 Words
Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?
A. If you mean physical trait, it’s probably my smile. I must have a weird face, because whenever I’m not smiling, people ask if I’m upset. Nine times out of ten, I’m just thinking. Then they insist I must be annoyed at something, and eventually it becomes true. If you mean personality trait, people usually say I’m incredibly nice. I’m proud of this, because it means I’ve totally fooled 99% of those who’ve met me.
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. 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. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?
A. Singing. I have a strong voice but am terrible at staying on-key. Which is a really bad combination, because it means I’m loud and painful.
