Pam Lewis
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Breathe deeply

Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. Being a fiction writer.

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. Well, what I like best about myself is that pretty much everything is interesting to me and most of what's interesting is also very funny.

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. One-upsmanship. The trouble is that I'm usually unaware when it's started, so at first I think I need to reach for a one-up of my own. I never have one ready and luckily I can then see how ridiculous the whole thing is.

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. This could sound a little pompous, but Edith Wharton. Not for her work (which I admire but do not identify with) but for her life, which was a huge inspiration to me.
