My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

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

A. My mind doesn't really work like this--but I have always wanted to go to one of those parties in the Great Gatsby. And maybe I would like to go out to tea with Emily Holmes Coleman. I'd want her to try and tell me about that stint she wrote about in The Shutter of Snow. I bet it would be a wild tea party, full of gasps and hands waving.

Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?

A. This changes so often, but since I was able to talk, I've loved Johnny Cash.

Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?

A. I would be a country music singer with all the bangles and boots.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. Dim sum, a noisy walk downtown, then the beach with my dog to hunt for sand dollars.
