A. Writing was my first occupation, begun at age 23.
A. Umm, writing?
A. Kailua High School in Hawaii
A. I don't actually listen to much music since I need quiet to work. But I would say Queen (group) from way back.
A. I don't have a favorite. If it makes me laugh, I like it.
A. That would have to be Scrubs. I think I've bought all Seasons they have available so far.
A. Currently, peaceful and full of laughter. Overall--amazing.
A. I don't think anything that broad in scope can be described. It's one of those 'to each his own'. For me it's rather simple--sharing my life with someone I love.
A. Loss of loved ones.
A. Where I am.
A. Cool. Yeah, it's outdated, but it's a rare day you'll catch me saying 'awesome.'
A. I used to paint with oils. Didn't have much talent for it, and I don't have the patience to actually acquire some skill for it, but if I could, that would be--cool.
A. That all of my books have made the New York Times list, including four in the #1 spot.
A. That I smoke.
A. My will-power, when I choose to let it work.
A. This question doen't relate to me, since I've never wished to be anything other than what I am.
A. My sense of humor.
A. James Malory
A. Villains are meant to be hated. I have no favorites.
A. Are you kidding me? Being a writer, what could top that?
A. Trust, dependability, a good sense of humor.
A. Not thinking about my eternal diet, I'm going to say pizza,
A. What you Give-Tesla. Feelin' Way Too Damn Good-Nickelback. Overkill-Colin Hay. Feeling Good--Nina Simone. As a Judgement--Ennio Morricone.
A. I would have to say Kathleen E. Woodiness and Rosemary Rogers who started this wonderful genre.
A. The Wolf and the Dove, Sweet Savage Love, The Clan of the Cave Bear, and two of my own, Tender Rebel and Warrior's Woman.
A. Don't laugh, but I like to reread my own books. A few can make me cry again, and most of them can make me laugh again.
A. Put your heart into what you're writing. If you can't laugh at your own characters, or shed a tear for them, or even get angry at one of them, no one else will either.
A. That they love the Malorys. So do I.
A. In a word--Rupert. He was created near the end of a prior book, The Devil who Tamed Her, and he ended up being too handsome, so I toned that down by making him seem somewhat effeminate. But after that book was finished, I couldn't stop thinking about him, or kicking myself for giving him that stigma, so I came up with a reason for it, a ruse, an attitude he fostered specifically for his mother. Then suddenly I had the makings of a hero in him, so I gave him his own book to share his unusual motives with my readers.
