What are your ideal writing conditions?
A rainy day, quiet house, dog by my feet, coffee by my computer. Sheer bliss!
What book have you reread the most?
What’s So Amazing About Grace? by Philip Yancey
If you could have lunch with any literary character, who would it be and why?
My first thought was Scarlett O’Hara, but then I thought she’d probably just talk about herself. So my next choice would be Dr. Dumbledore from Harry Potter. I want to talk to him about marketing those howler owls that deliver mothers “messages” to their children. Those would be awesome.
Favorite first line of a book:
“There was a boy called Eustace Clarence Scrubb, and he almost deserved it.” —C. S. Lewis, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (1952)
Do you have a go-to writing snack?
What is your favorite writing tool?
Apple iMac. So user-friendly! And incredible customer service . . . of which I make full use.
If you were trapped in a book, what fictional place would you like to explore?
What would the title of your biography be?
She Did WHAT?
“To be happy at home is the ultimate result of all ambition.” —Samuel Johnson
Favorite writing quote:
“Writing a novel is like building a chicken coop in a high wind. You grab any board you can and nail it down fast.” —William Faulkner
