Author I draw inspiration from: Flaubert.  He was a world-class whiner.  We'd get along fine.

Favorite place to read a book: Any place at all, as long as the lighting is good, the chair is comfortable, it's quiet, just warm enough, has a place to balance my cup of tea, and ideally there's a dog or cat nearby, snoring prettily.

Book character I’d like to be stuck in an elevator with: Becky Sharp.  That should be entertaining.

Vanity Fair (Annotated)
By William Makepeace Thackeray

The moment I knew I wanted to become an author: The day my best friend in fourth grade told me that writers don't need to buy books because people just give books to them. 

 Hardback, paperback, ebook or audiobook: Ebook.  I have weak hands and like long books.

The last book I read: Something from the Oven, Laura Shapiro's terrific book about American cooking in the 1950s and '60s.

Pen & paper or computer: Clearly you've never seen my handwriting, or you wouldn’t ask.

Book character I think I’d be best friends with: Red Sammy's wife in "A Good Man Is Hard to Find." "'Ain't she cute?' the woman repeated, stretching her mouth politely."

If I wasn’t an author, I’d be a: Desire:  Trapeze artist.  Likelihood:  Data-input operator.

Favorite decade in fashion history: 1950s, hands down.  The skirts!  The pedal pushers!

Place I’d most like to travel:  Underwater.

My signature drink: A Manhattan made by my friend Danny, who always has the good vermouth.

Favorite artist: Visual artist?  I like Richard Diebenkorn an awful lot.

Number one on my bucket list: Get a Great Dane.  Or two.
