Have you ever travelled abroad? If so, where? If not, do you want to?
I’ve been to Canada several times (back when I lived in western New York aka Almost Canada), but that is it! I want to go to England, Scotland, and someplace far north where I can see the Northern Lights.
What does your perfect day look like?
I’d probably be in a cabin high up in the mountains with endless coffee and time to write and create.
Favorite TV show?
Twin Peaks always and forever. I also love New Girl and Silicon Valley.
Who is your favorite author, and why?
Shirley Jackson is my absolute favorite. Her ideas and her characters haunt me in the best of ways.
Do you have any pets?
I recently moved away from my family and our dog (an old, long-haired chihuahua named Billy), and I miss him terribly!
What's the first thing you did this morning?
I always start my day with a glass of water, and then immediately start making coffee.
Do you like scary movies?
I enjoy a scary movie every now and then, but it’s not my go-to genre. I love all the classic slasher films — Halloween being my favorite.
When was the last time you were nervous?
I’m a very nervous person by nature, so it’s hard for me to think of a time when I’m not feeling that way!
What's the best gift you've ever received?
It’s tough to think of a better gift than the big box of Beanie Babies I received for Christmas one year in the 90s.
Do you prefer going to the movies or streaming them from home?
I definitely try to go to the theater whenever there’s something I want to see! But watching from home allows for snack breaks, which is ideal.
