Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Every experience, good or bad, is a priceless collector's item.

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

A. The ability to become invisible and/or non-corporeal at will. Oh, you mean like a real actual talent? I'd like to be able to play a guitar without sawing chunks out of it and rearranging the strings.

Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. Well, it used to be"author" but now that I've landed that one...I dunno, maybe running a school for kids that have superpowers due to bizarre genetic mutations? Oh and also I'd have superpowers too.

Q. What do you regret most?

A. See my "motto and maxim" answer. Regret is pointless. I never do anything without first deciding to do it based on facts and feelings, and if it doesn't work out how I hoped, oh well, there's another notch on my experience belt.

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

A. Eve, of Adam and Eve. And I would say, "Hey. Hey! Put it down. Put it down...and walk away. Good girl."
