My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. "Don't pick it." My Mom told me that, and it applies to any number of situations.

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

A. I love to read, I like to cook, and I love hanging out with my daughters.

Q. What do you regret most?

A. Meeting one of my literary heroes -- one of the men whose work made me think that I could become a writer, too. He turned out to be a horrible sexist who claimed to never read books by women. I'm still getting over that one.

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. I am terrifically thin-skinned, and I hold grudges. So don't piss me off! Not even accidentally!

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. I think I'm supposed to say something about my children or my books here, but honestly, any morning that I wake up and find that I've successfully charged the various electronic devices that I'll need, that's a good day.
