My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Nova Ren Suma
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. What if?

Q. What do you regret most?

A. My misspent youth, my student loans, and my two unpublished novels that live under my couch. That sure sounds like a lot.

Q. What 3 personal qualities are most important to you?

A. (1) Aspiration, (2) Individuality, and (3) Having an open mind.

Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?

A. At the moment of typing this: "2:45 a.m." by Elliott Smith, "I Feel" by Cat Power, "Family Tree" by Bellafea, "Black Balloon" by the Kills, and "Rabbit Fur Coat" by Jenny Lewis. Next month they'll all change except for "2:45 a.m.," which has held that spot for years.

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. Each new success in my writing career feels like the one, but really it has nothing at all to do with writing. I found my one true love when we were both very young, and that's still the best thing that's ever happened in my life.
