My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. I may not agree with a word you say, but would defend to the death your right to say it was Voltaire's first, but it's a good one!
Q. With whom in history do you most identify?
A. Grainne the Pirate Queen. Once she locked her husband out of his castle, and declared that it was hers now. We've all had days like that!
Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?
A. I really love Gaston from Disney's Beauty and the Beast. He has the best villain song ever! There's also Shakespeare's Richard III, who was terribly charming. (Villains often are...)
Q. What’s your greatest fear?
A. I have this awful fear of seaweed. I once read a book where a magical storm caused seaweed to rise up and eat a girl, and I still eye big clumps of seaweed warily when I go on walks down the beach.
Q. What is your greatest achievement?
A. Abseiling in six inch heels! (Secretly, my first book, but the abseiling was pretty impressive.)
