My Life in 8 Words
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.
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 are your 5 favorite songs?
A. It’s SO hard to say, but here’s what first came to mind: “Inside Out” by Eve 6, “Aneurysm” by Nirvana, “Chasing Cars” by Snow Patrol, “Aly Walk with Me” by the Raveonettes, and “Holiday” by Green Day.
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.
