  1. Thanks for the nomination, Joel! As I said in my email, I’ve already done this award, but here are my answers to your questions:

    1.If you are to play a significant role to save our decaying society, what would you write about?

    I’m not sure that I’m in a great position to save our decaying society, but I make a point to include social issues that I care about in my novels. My first one deals with gender issues and social stratification.

    2.If your partner comes home from work very hungry, which easiest and quick food can you make for him/her?

    Grilled cheese sandwiches and soup

    3.If you are to interview a famous writer, what would you ask him/her?

    I would ask: What is the one story you have burning inside of you that you either are saving for the right time to write or will never let see the light of day?

    4.What do you fear most in your life?

    Losing the ones I love

    5.Will you be nervous if invited to speak to an audience for the first time?

    I’m always a little nervous before public speaking, but I like to think I handle it well.

    6.What do you hate most in your life?

    That I am away from my family.

    7.What inspired you to follow your passion as a writer?

    Seeing other writers and authors succeed. If they can do it, I can do it!

    8.Will you give up writing when you are trying very hard but your book is not selling well?

    Nope. Even if I decide not to put in the time and money to publish, I’ll always write.

    9.What do you want to achieve in the next ten years as a writer?

    I want to be able to write full time as my primary career.

    10.What is the best book you have ever read?

    My favorite novel is Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov. It takes a horrifying subject and applies gorgeous language to it. I just think it’s a beautiful example of language.

    Thanks again for the nomination! I hope you enjoyed reading my answers!
