Q & A

What do you keep by your side when you're writing?

* Music: Bonnie Raitt, Chris Smither, and Girlyman
* Drink: Diet Coke
* Toys: The bunny, the pig, and the giraffe

Who's your favorite fictional character?

Sherlock Holmes. When I was twelve years old I read “The Adventure of the Speckled Band,” and stopped sleeping for a week. (I lay in the dark listening for a low whistle.) I adore Holmes for his specialized knowledge. He knows what he needs to know. He never clutters his mind with useless information.

If you could visit any time, place, or person, when, where or who would you visit?


Shakespeare, opening night, Macbeth.

If you could be any other person who would you be?

Shakespeare, opening night, Hamlet. Because I would not yet have written Macbeth.
