Sarah Pekkanen
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. A group of girlfriends, a bottle or three of wine, and chocolate can make just about anything easier to bear.

Q. What is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?

A. Quality control at the Godiva-making facility.

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

A. Singing so well on "American Idol" that Simon is reduced to a stuttering, quivering mess.

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. "That's what she said!" (only fans of "The Office" will get this)

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. I just love the wording of this question. It's like, "We know there are MANY flaws -- probably too many to count -- but if you could only choose one (and it must be so hard to narrow it down), think of your greatest flaw, the one that makes people run away from you screaming. Um, I get distracted easily? Think impure thoughts about certain movie stars? Scarf down chocolate in front of my children and lie to them, telling them I'm eating fruit?
