Micol Ostow
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. "Writing is a socially acceptable form of schizophrenia."--E.L. Doctorow

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

A. Right this very second I am sitting on a cozy couch overlooking the swimming pool and the sun-drenched InterCoastal here in Palm Beach--not too many complaints.

Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?

A. Whatever my hipster brother has loaded onto my ipod most recently. Lately I've been listening to a lot of Regina Spektor.

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. I am in awe of the entire faculty at Vermont College of the Fine Arts, where I received my MFA in writing for children and young adults. Brilliant minds, all of them, and amazing mentors.

Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?

A. Um, me, but maybe a few inches taller and less inclined to oversleep in the morning and to bite my nails.
