My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Hmmm...I don't really have one, but I am rather fond of "Carpe Diem." Oh! And when I was in high school, I had a bumper sticker that said "Honk If You Want Me!" But I'm pretty sure that doesn't count, especially since I only got honks when my sister was in the car.
Q. What’s your greatest fear?
A. I'm scared of a lot of things -- the dark, food that's been left in the fridge too long, scary movies that involve serial killers...the list goes on.
Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?
A. Hmmm. I'm torn between cheeseburgers and ice cream. One summer I seriously ate ice cream almost every single day, and I never got sick of it, so I guess ice cream.
Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?
A. Holden Caulfield
Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?
A. "Whatever" and "Scandalous" -- after I turned in REALITY CHICK, my editor emailed me and was like, "You do realize you use the word 'scandalous' on pages 1, 5, 13, 17, 21, 22, 35..." I had to cut a lot of them.
