Dana Gynther
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. "Experience is one thing you can't get for nothing." Oscar Wilde (who else?)

Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?

A. Rogues like John Willoughby and Richard Katz. Or Dracula.

Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?

A. With my family on the beach in Cahuita (Costa  Rica), listening to howler monkeys after just having snorkled. Add some cold drinks and patacones (freshly-made plantain chips).

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. Here in Spain, it is undoubtedly my foreignness, my American accent, my green eyes. And in the States? I imagine I blend in pretty well.

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. It depends on the year. In 1977, it was meeting Peter Frampton. In 1988, it was mastering French. In 1992, it was marrying the man of my dreams. In 2012: my novel being published. Without a doubt.
