My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. It's never too late to have a happy childhood.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?

A. Heath Ledger's Joker. It doesn't get better than that.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

A. Susanna, from my series. Becase she's SO brave. I adore brave people.

Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?

A. Since it's been so cold and miserable here in New York City, I'd have to say Mexico. Also because I love, love, love margaritas.

Q. What do you regret most?

A. Stressing over weight when I was younger. I grew up in California, near the beach. Unfortunately, I believed at the time that only one body type--super skinny!--was acceptable. Now I know better. Beauty comes in ALL shapes and sizes.

Greetings from NYC, USA to all you Brits slogging through the snow. I feel your pain. We just got over a snowstorm. Best way to endure it: under a down comforter with a glass of wine and the remote. Trust me.
