My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Karma is a boomerang. (One of my characters said it first!)

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. I can’t do anything halfway. And if that’s cheating, I would say kindness.

Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. Being a novelist. It’s the career I almost didn’t have, and nine books in, it still feels like a fantasy.

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. Helping my two kids grow into people I both admire and want to hang out with.

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

A. I always skip the historical questions, too.
