Despite the fact that I read hundreds of novels per year and not even one tenth as much poetry, my favorite book is The Collected Works of Rumi.
My crushes, they're a bit nerdly. How nerdly? Like, Wolverine (or maybe I just have a crush on Hugh Jackman). And then there's my bipolar, alien, dwarf boyfriend, Miles Vorkosigan.
If you could be any character in fiction, whom would you be / Why?
Truthfully, if a character is fully developed and real and human, then I wouldn't want to step into their shoes. I'm already human, and not at all anxious to trade my own flawed hand for someone else's. I'd pick a simple icon... James Bond, say. (Yes, really. It's time there was a female Bond anyway!) He's constantly being plunged into thrilling new experiences, from which he always comes out unruffled and unscathed. The only thing I can compare that to in real life is... being a reader.
If Hollywood made a movie about your life, whom would you like to see play the lead role as you/ Why?
For actresses, I'm thinking someone with a good sense of humor and who isn't afraid to look silly onscreen--like Drew Barrymore
If someone wrote a biography about you, what do you think the title should be – please explain?
"Guaranteed To Blow Your Mind." No, just kidding. I would like for each of my books to make readers think about something in a whole new way, but I don't see myself as biography-worthy... so a good title might be, "OMG: We Don't Know What Possessed Us to Publish This Tome About Some Writer Lady."
How would you describe yourself/life in seven words?
I'll steal a line from one of my favorite musical artists, Ben Folds, from his classic song "Philosophy:" "Crazy, but I get the job done." That goes for me and life, equally.
