Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Let's have as much fun as possible.

Q. Where did you go to high school and/or college?

A. I went to a large public high school on Long Island, NY, and then to Harvard. Quite a culture shock transitioning from one to the other. I also have graduate degrees from University of Southern California (Go Trojans!) and UCLA (Go Bruins!)

Q. What is your favorite television show?

A. Slings and Arrows, and not just for the Shakespeare connection.

Q. Name of your favorite composer or music artist?

A. I play the accordion--are you SURE you want to hear what I like to listen to?

Q. What was/is your favorite job?

A. Why would I say anything but novelist? Of course, I do love to teach, so "novelist who does programs about the history behind her books" is REALLY my favorite part.
