My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. "Writing is a socially acceptable form of schizophrenia."--E.L. Doctorow
Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?
A. Oh, that one's too easy: a day in bed with no deadlines looming, a stack of books I want to read, my doggie, my fiance, and some good movies on demand. Oh, and an endless supply of coffee.
Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?
A. If you will permit me a moment of immodesty, I'd say Paige Andrews from my own Bradford Novels series. She's a mean, mean girl, and I love her!
Q. What do you regret most?
A. I always wished I'd learned to play a musical instrument when I was younger. These days I'm way too busy/lazy/old.
Q. What is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?
A. Teaching and editing, or some combination thereof. Both take me out of my own head and enhance my work.
