Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. If you're bored, you have no one to blame but yourself.

Q. What do you regret most?

A. The list would be endless. I guess I think I could have been a much, much better parent and husband.

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. Again, I'm not qualified to say. Maybe my intense curiousity about everything around me - that, in my opinion, is the most important quality a writer can have.

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. I'm much too impatient. I live in a near-constant state of irritability, though my irritation is usually directed at myself more than at anyone else.

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

A. My secret dream would be to play in a rock band, but I have absolutely no musical talent. I can't even hum on key.
