If money were no object, how would you spend your time?

Doing exactly what I’m doing. 

What book impacted your life the most and how?

Well, I can’t really say that any one book had a transformative impact, but, I suppose what first got me turned on to reading were the Nancy Drew books, never the Hardy Boys. I think I had a kind of crush on Nancy. 

Tell us something about you that would surprise most of the people who think they know you.

When I was in high school and in the first two years of college I had bad acne and wore underwear on my head to keep my hair off my forehead. Fruit of the Loom briefs, to be exact. There you have it.
