    "I've already been able to travel to so many different places — like Brazil, Singapore, and South Africa — because of my books. I've been so lucky. There's really nowhere that I haven't been except Australia; maybe I'll get to go there someday soon. I really want to hang out with some koalas, they look super cuddly."

    "I've written so many books I can't even keep track because so many of them haven't even been published. I've probably written 80 books that have been published and a total of 100 that haven't been published. Of course, that includes my Star Wars fan fiction that I wrote when I was 11, which I'm still waiting for George Lucas to call me about."

    "I like Game of Thrones, Nurse Jackie, Scandal, and so many others. There isn't a show that I don't watch. I love SO many TV shows, especially what some people would consider trashy shows like Catfish, My 600-lb Life, and Say Yes to the Dress. I don't care what people think, I'm still going to watch them."

    "I don't have a driver's license. I never got one because I can't pass the test, and I never really lived anywhere where I've had to drive. I used to live in a small town in Indiana where I could walk everywhere, then I moved to New York City where I could take public transportation, and now I live in Key West, Florida and I just ride a bike."

    "I really like Twitter. I know it has some problems, but overall I really enjoy it. I like the immediacy of. You can be somewhere stranded and you can just tweet for help and so many people can come to your aid. I enjoy how it's very quick and helpful."

    "I moved to New York to be an illustrator, but that didn't work out how I originally wanted so I became the manager of a 700-bed freshman dorm at NYU. I did that for 10 years and it gave me a lot of great ideas for books. I have a whole book series called the Heather Wells Mysteries about a woman who' the manager of a 700-bed freshman dorm. I was trying to get published the whole time I was there. The first books I got published were historical romance novels that I wrote under a pen name, and when the students found out about it they invented a drinking game in which they had to drink every time I wrote the word 'nipple.'"

    "The first thing I would obviously do is have my enemies incarcerated and throw them in the dungeon, but then I'd let them out after they learned their lessons. I also love animals, so I would make all the shelters no-kill and try to get people to adopt them all. Lastly, I love art and think it's really important so I'd make sure all the schools have really strong art programs so that all of the students would get art supplies and feel supported."
