My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

A. There are too many, from James in James and the Giant Peach to Harry Potter.

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. People who say, "If I had the time, I'd write a children's book." My answer to that is, "If I had the time, I'd be a brain surgeon."

Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?

A. I'd have to go with a great Shakespearean villain, someone like Iago or Shylock.

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

A. I'd love to go back in time and meet Hatshepsut, the only woman pharaoh in ancient Egypt, since I just finished my first novel, and it's about her. She could tell me everything I got wrong and maybe the few things I got right.
