My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. My newest one: All our secrets are the same.
Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?
A. Sushi. Or Mexican. Or Italian. I love food too much to eat only one thing.
Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?
A. Either drawing -- I can barely draw a stick figure -- or a decent sense of direction (which is a talent as far as I'm concerned).
Q. What’s your greatest fear?
A. Snakes. If you read Dirty Secret, you'll understand why.
Q. What were your previous occupations?
A. I've been a fish-gutter in Alaska (really!); a waitress in Minneapolis; a record store clerk and an online producer in San Francisco; and a copy editor, freelance writer, and writing teacher in New York.
