+ Where are you from? When were you born? Where do you live now?

I was born in 1970 in Los Angeles. Now I live in New York, which is like Los Angeles, only completely different.

+ Do you have any pets?

A very stupid cat named Gigi who seems to constantly forget who we are and is terrified of us. We love her anyway.

And Libba Bray has a dog and I'm the god mama so it sleeps over at my house sometimes.

+ Why do you write books?

Because it is cheaper than therapy.

And because you guys read them. Thank you for reading them. Without you, I couldn’t do this.

+ Are you a musician?

Not even a little bit, but if you think I am because of my books, I’m so glad because it means I did a good job of fooling you.
