Q1.Tell us a bit about your family.
A. I have the most incredible family that anyone has ever had the privilege to come up in. My father and mother are sweet, caring, brilliant human beings who would have gotten into it with the Russian Mafia to put me through ballet school if I had asked and my sister is a beautiful genius who could probably have been one of Charlie’s Angels if they dressed better.
Q2. How do you work through self-doubts and fear?
A. Booze and Delusion.
Q3. What scares you the most?
A. Letting down the ones I love.
Q4. What makes you happiest?
A. Booze and Delusion.
Q5. Why do you write?
A. I’ve always had stories to tell. Since I could talk, I’ve had stories to tell and an imagination to get me into trouble. Writing just seemed like a good outlet for it. I’ve wanted to be an author since I knew I had to pick something to be.
Q6. What books did you love growing up?
A. The First book I ever remember being in love with was Jurassic Park, by Michael Crichton.
Q7. What book genre of books do you adore?
A. As an adolescent and into my teens I used to love reading Zombie books and Aliens or Predator novelizations. Anything that was an adaptation of a movie that I loved. They were easy to digest and really kept me engrossed in a time when there was a lot of competition for my attention. Now I’ll read almost anything.
