AGE: You don't want to know. Really, you don't.
FAVORITE COLOR: Green. No, blue! AAAAAHHHHH!
FAVORITE BOOK: After my own, you mean? There are too many to list, and I read pretty widely. Some favorite authors outside the genre: Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Tom Robbins, Mark Twain, Raymond Chandler, Jared Diamond, and dozens of others...
FAVORITE QUOTE: "There has to be a reason." Though the quote of mine that I keep noticing cropping up on the internet is "You can take a break from writing, but you can't take a break from being a writer."
