Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?
A. Favorite fictional hero... there are so many amazing men in fiction. Ha. But I might have to go with Holden Caulfield from Catcher in the Rye, even though he's kind of an anti-hero.
Q. What do you regret most?
A. Wow, what a downer question. I think my biggest regret that I'll share on the Internet is being offered a free (free!!) ticket to see U2 on their Joshua Tree tour. And then my mother told me I was much too young to go to a rock concert.
Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?
A. I have favorite artists, not songs, because I love to listen to albums straight through. I love U2, Coldplay, Patty Griffin, Allison Krauss and Union Station, Dave Matthews. U2 would have to be my favorite. They're mesmerizing in concert.
Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?
A. I would love to be able to play a musical instrument. And as long as this is fantasy, why not the violin? I saw a violin concert once that brought tears to my eyes.
