Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?

A. In my next life, I want to be a housecat.  Naps all the time!

Q. What is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?

A. Sleeping! Okay, no, travel, really. I love going somewhere new, trying to see the world differently.

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. I'm told that it's my evil laugh.

Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?

A. Oh, I would so love to be able to draw. I can see it all in my head, but . I can barely draw a straight line with a ruler.
