My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. When I was a kid, my role model was Leonardo da Vinci -- a man who drew and painted beautifully, but was also a scientist, curious about the natural world. I wouldn't say I identify with Leonardo, but I'd sure like to be as talented as he was!

Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?

A. I'm into Bollywood music now, so I'd say Johnny Cue, Tandoori Nights, and some others whose titles I'd just mangle.

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. I'd love to go back in time and meet Hatshepsut, the only woman pharaoh in ancient Egypt, since I just finished my first novel, and it's about her. She could tell me everything I got wrong and maybe the few things I got right.

Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. I'm lucky enough to be doing it!
