KE: Rocky Road, the chocolate and the marshmallow and the caramel being in complete harmony with each other! And I understand this is actually called Phish Food by Ben & Jerry.
KLC: Where’s the coolest place you’ve ever traveled to and what was so cool about it?
KE: Istanbul, Turkey. Three ancient cultures converge in one location, it is stunning, it moved me to tears and I want to go back.
KLC: Name one movie you can quote and then quote it.
KE: Jimmy Somerville’s song from Sally Potter’s Orlando
“At last I am free
Yes at last, at last
to be free of the past
and the future that beckons me
I am coming! I am coming!
Here I am!
Neither a woman, nor a man
We are joined, we are one
With the human face
We are joined, we are one
With the human face...”
It goes on from there but I love the message!
KLC: Pick one: Eleanor Roosevelt, Angela Davis, or Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.
KE: Just too hard! Can I say all three for different reasons?
KLC: The United States electoral process is____________________.
KE: in desperate need of restructuring.
KLC: What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever done to get someone’s attention?
KE: When I was a little girl, a friend of the family took a home movie of me but there was no sound. I remember screaming my head off and there was no sound while I was jumping up and down on my Skipsy Doodle. Did you or your sister ever have a swervy curvy topsy tervy tipsy Skipsy Doodle?!
KLC: No, but I'm going to Google that right after I post this.
If you had the opportunity to patent a brand new product, what might that be?
KE: A personal jet pack that would fly me over all of the stupid SUVs so I could go into the city whenever I wanted!
KLC: Which of the following is least likely to ever exist: bigfoot, elves, or government regulation on Wall Street?
KE: Bigfoot. Elves I cannot live without and government regulation I want to hope will happen.
KLC: Wild card question! If you could name someone famous—living or dead—as your emergency contact, who would it be?
KE: Aphra Behn
KLC: Extra credit wild card question. Have you ever won a medal, trophy, ribbon, etc. at something that had absolutely nothing to do with writing?
KE: Yes. What was it? Ballroom Dancing
KLC: Can you share something about yourself that no one has ever asked you about in an interview before?
KE: I have always done Q and A’s after my performances and I have been asked almost everything. The strangest thing I have ever been asked was in an interview in Bath, UK. I was asked if I could imitate Skooby Doo! I really can’t think of anything more extraordinary than that!
