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 trait is most noticeable about you?

A. I'm usually smiling.

Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. Backup singer! I actually got to live the fantasy for a night when the Rock Bottom Remainders, an all-author supergroup, came to town, and I sang back-up on "Mustang Sally." I have no idea how I sounded, or even if my microphone was on, but I loved it, loved it, loved it.

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

A. After meeting the horribly sexist literary hero, I think I've given up on wishing for future encounters with famous people.

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!
