1. Did you always want to be an author?
Yes! When I was 6 years old, I went from reading “See Spot Run” to reading novels within a few months. The first “big book” I read was called “Angel Unaware” about a deceased child, now an angel, watching his family from heaven. I was deeply moved by the book. It was like a lightning bolt through my soul, and I knew then that I wanted to do that, I wanted to write novels. Since then, writing novels has been the longing that leads me through my life.
2. Who are your top five fictional characters?
Helios from WHOM THE GODS WOULD DESTROY; Daniel Silva’s spy/painting restorer Gabriel Allon; Laura Ingalls in the Little House books; Stephanie Plum in Janet Evanovich’s hilarious series; Kinsey Millhone in Sue Grafton’s wonderful mystery series.
3. How many hours a day do you spend writing?
As many as possible. I have a 10 year old daughter and I am very involved in supporting my husband’s career as a sculptor, so every day is a little different. Same days, if I’m chaperoning a field trip with my daughter’s school class, I might have one hour at my desk. Other times, the entire day is clear and I get 6 or 7 unencumbered hours to write—which makes me very happy! I’m more productive when I can clear a group of hours together to write; the “maker” vs. “manager” schedule applies in my case.
4. Do you have a dream cast for your book?
For Emma, Elisha Cuthbert; for Arthur, Eric Bana; for Laurette, Marion Cotillard; for Jeannie, Aisha Tyler; for Robert, Michael Fassbender; for Susie, Elle Fanning; for Donny, Danny Glover; for Theo, John C. Reilly; for Kangee, Allie Young; for Alexei, Sean Bean.
5. Which book would you have with you on a desert island?
The collected works of William Shakespeare. After reading the plays, I’d set to work memorizing them all! What fun!
