Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. What I do best is drag other people into my fantasy world.

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

A. Dancing around my apartment until my neighbors complain.

Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. Dark chocolate. My days would not be many, as I would probably die quickly from a lack of nutrients. But they would be a great last few days.

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. "Efficacious." Like maybe if I say it a lot, then I will actually BE it!

Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?

A. Camp Emerson, the overnight camp in the Berkshires that I used to go to.
