I spend half my time in New York City and the other half in Sydney, Australia. That means I get two summers every year! I'm a big supporter of fan art and fan fiction, especially when it's based on my work. I like mangoes for breakfast.

Celebrity Lookalike: I look a bit like Michael C. Hall, though I am in no way a serial killer. (To be clear: neither is he, but he plays Dexter on TV.)
