The interview included a bonus round of 20 questions. Here’s an excerpt:

8.  The best thing I have ever read is…This is a hard question- like what is my favorite movie. There are two things that have stuck with me and I think of often- Mark Twain’s  LETTERS FROM EARTH and THE HORSE DEALER’S DAUGHTER by D.H. Lawrence.
17.  One mistake that most aspiring screenwriters make is… writing what they think people want and not a story they want to tell.
18.  If I knew the apocalypse was coming in 24 hours, I’d… catch a flight to Arizona to be with my sister.  We would hang out in her pool and remember stories of our family – laugh, cry and make the best of the time we have being together.
