When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Thinking about writing, or thinking about ideas that could spark a story. Conversing with people, so that I can hear their stories. Otherwise, I'm cooking, or traveling, or learning how to make things from scratch.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes. I remember a story I wrote when I was about seven. I don't remember exactly what it was about, but it had very much to do with the daily life of a seven year old, plus a few curve balls thrown in.
Who are your favorite authors?
