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 eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. Chocolate or coffee. I suppose some sort of hybrid cafe mocha-type beverage.

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

A. I have some thoughts about this--but they are for me to know and you to (maybe) find out!

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.

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!
