My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What do you regret most?

A. Not much. I’ve made a ton of mistakes, but they’ve all led me to this point. But I often regret not bringing a map with me in the car.

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. I tend to get wrapped up in my own head and not notice things and people around me. If I’m really involved in what I’m doing, I forget things people say in about half a second. It’s great for focus, but sometimes it comes across as thoughtlessness, and I wonder if I’m being a jerk.

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

A. Playing Wii Fit. I’ve always hated exercise with a passion, but I love video games, and I love beating my husband’s scores, so it’s super motivating.

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. Not being liked. A close second would be admitting my greatest fear.
