You’ve got the chance to be a best-selling author or live forever, which scenario sounds more tempting?
Probably best-selling author unless all of my family and friends get to live forever with me. If they can, I would definitely choose living forever.
If you could travel through every state in America or each country in Europe, which one would you choose?
Each country in Europe. I’ve already travelled most of the U.S. so I’d give up what I haven’t seen to travel through Europe.
What is your favorite spoof movie (I like Scary Movie)?
Hot Shots! Loved it!
Is there anything you’re currently working on?
I’m working on Cooper’s story from Trying to Get Over You.
Who is your favorite author and if you could ask him/her one question, what would it be?

You’re able to sit down with any president in United States history. Who would you choose and what would you talk about?
George Washington: I’d ask if the way our country is now is anything like he thought it would be.
