Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. You don't have to figure it all out at once.

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. My messy red hair and my height.

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

A. It would be amazing to meet William Shakespeare. And I'd probably say something brilliant like, "Um, excuse me, um, uh, could I please (gasp) have your autograph?"

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. Amusement park rides, especially roller coasters.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?

A. Becky Sharp in Vanity Fair. She's a sympathetic villain, kind of how Elizabeth Bennet is an imperfect heroine. I like characters who are somewhere in the middle.
