What were you like as a teen?
I was mostly exactly the same as I am today, though with fewer sun spots and more of a crush on David Bowie.
What were your favorite books as a kid?
On my shelf: Robin McKinley’s Beauty, Jane Austen’s Emma, Daphne DuMarier’s Rebecca and Anya Seton’s Katherine. (Woman power!)
Under my bed: Flowers in the Attic, Hollywood Wives, and Lace. (Different women, different powers.)
If you had one wish, what would you wish for?
I wish I were more decisive. No, wait.
What musicians have influenced your writing?
Any musician who knows to stop playing when I am writing is a friend of mine.
What are you looking forward to about YALLfest?
Matching fab twitter/facebook pals with infinitely more amazing, actual 3D people.
What is your favorite kind of pie?
Rhubarb. No wait.
