I want to be Sophia Nash when I grow up. Lovely, elegant and gracious. I try, but she seems to do these things effortlessly. So please welcome my friend, Sophia Nash.
1. Did you have a nickname growing up? Only later in life… First, “Fear” from colleagues at WTVJ, not because I exhibited it or inspired it:)–but because someone had a funny accent at the station and pronounced my name “Sofear”–and then it took on a life of it’s own! I also had a boss, the extraordinary Austin Kiplinger, who called me “Stretch!”
3. Aside from being a writer, what is your favorite job? Being a Mom, except the cooking part.
EB: Isn’t it a great job?! ‘Cept when your newly minted teenager tells you he doesn’t want to go The Hunger Games movie with you, he’d rather go with friends. Oh, and by the way, Mom, will you pay?
4. If you could choose any 3 people in history to meet, who would they be? Aside from dinner with God, I’d like to go to a week long house party with Jane Austen, Oscar Wilde, and Mark Twain. And Einstein. And the former anthropology major in me would like to see an Australopithecus.
5. Do you have a special writing place where you are most productive? In a tiny bedroom in France with the kids reading in the back yard, the neighbors mowing their lawn, and Coco La Dog biting my toes. That’s where I wrote most of my March 27th release–The Art of Duke Hunting!
EB: And I thought the Burien Press was a cool spot. Like I said, I want to be Sophia when I grow up.
