  • Who do you look to for inspiration?

My mom and dad. Any immigrants of any stripe who strike out for the great unknown.

  •      What’s the best (or worst) job not related to your career you ever had?

Waitress in a sports bar/hotel restaurant next to a cancer treatment center. Yup. Sports fans + chemo patients. The chef, a former Army cook named Madonna, taught me how to juggle with dinner rolls in the back on slow days.

  •      Where would you rather be if you couldn’t be here doing this?

I’m feeling stupid lucky this year…here-doing-this will do just fine for now.

  •      When did you decide you were going to take over the universe?

I can’t! Amanda Simpson told me in the seventh grade that if you have Lasik your eyeballs explode in space…I had Lasik. I need my eyeballs.

  •      Why would you ever stop writing, if you ever stopped writing?

If I figured it all out. Fat chance, happily.

Bonus Question: How do you measure, measure a year?
