My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Take it to the edge of risk, then go a little further.
Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?
A. Mostly what I wonder about the past is: What really happened? When I read about Typhoid Mary, there was little information from Mary's point of view, and I'd like to ask her: "Why didn't you believe you carried the disease?" I'm reading about Washington Roebling, who engineered and built the Brooklyn Bridge, despite horrible physical pain from a diving disease (the bends), and I want to ask him, "What really made you so sick?" Even more than that, I'd like to ask his wife Emily Roebling if she was the real engineer behind the building of the bridge. But that's another story for another time!

A. Samsa Superville
Q. What’s your best quality?
Q. What is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?
