Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?
A. At the beach drinking a margarita.
Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?
A. Thankfully, nothing. I don't stand out in a crowd. I much prefer to hang back and observe people.
Q. What’s your fantasy profession?
A. I would love to be in some kick-ass law enforcement job. But I guess writing about people who are is the next best thing.
Q. What is your greatest achievement?
A. I think I'm most proud of the fact that I refused to give up on my dreams (of becoming an author) even when nothing was going my way and it seemed like a futile endeavor.
