If you could cook dinner for any author, dead or alive, who would it be?
When I was an undergraduate, I had dinner with Ray Bradbury in San Diego. for him, but if I had, I would have served coconut shrimp.
What scares you the most about the writing process?
I have been writing for so long, that my fears have long since faded away. I us it as a learning opportunity.
Who is your biggest literary crush, author or character?
I adore Tom Robbins. He has travelled where no man has gone before...or since.
What books are on your nightstand?
Whirlwind, by James Clavell now resides on my nightstand. It was hidden on my bookshelf.
Where do you get your ideas? What inspires you?
My inspiration comes from the fact that I never walk from point A to point B. There's so much to see in between. Writing is all about seeing the details.

What book were you supposed to read in high school, but never did?
Sorry. I have always loved reading, and never missed an opportunity.

I would thank adobe clay, which is still used in the manufacture of homes in Mexico/
