If you could have dinner with any author, who would it be and what would you ask him/her? I would love to sit down with Stephen Hawking and ask him to talk to me about all of his theories on the universe and beyond.

What is the best piece of writing advice you ever received: “You have a 0% chance of ever getting published if you don't give it a shot!”

Finish these sentences:

I wish I...can watch as my wife and boys read the dedication that I wrote to them in a published copy of my first novel.

If I satisfying writing fiction is, I would've started many years ago.
