Inside the Author with 20 Questions: Mae Wood


1. What is one thing about you that would surprise us?
I hate peanut butter.

2. What would an ideal day be for you?
Today was pretty awesome – make pancakes, family walk around the neighborhood, one-on-one lunch out with my daughter, supervising my toddler in the sandbox, then bathing said toddler, grilling out with local beers and sofa snuggles with the love of my life with the promise of a fun read on my Kindle for later.

3. What is your favorite curse word?
Sugar. Seriously, I have a potty mouth, but when bad shit happens,”Sugar!” Is what pops out.

4. What is your favorite movie?
Monty Python’s Holy Grail.

5. What is your favorite indulgence?
I’m not one to limit myself to one favorite indulgence, so I’ll answer with a line from a Mae I’m *not* named after —
“”Too much of a good thing can be wonderful.” – Mae West.

6. What profession would you not like to do?
Food service. I was a waitress in college and terrible at it. But as a result, I always tip at least 20%. And I write about a restaurant. Go figure.

“One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star.” – Friedrich Nietzsche

You might as well ask which of my children I like better. I don’t even know how to begin to pick a favorite.

15. If you could hang out one day with your favorite writer, who would it be and what would you do?
A colleague? Kate Canterbary. Sit by some water somewhere and drink and solve all of the world’s problems while smashing the patriarchy.
A writer I don’t know? Carl Haissen. I’d laugh my ass off.

18. What word or words do you like to read in a book (can pertain to describing anything or just in general)?

Bitch. I’m not down with “negging” and I don’t think it’s a term of affection.

Ewoks. They look cute and are feisty. Kinda my role models.
