Charlotte Crowley, a published but generally unnoticed writer living in Boston, Massachusetts, has been preparing thoughtful, considered responses to a set of interview questions just in case anyone ever takes an interest in her and her work.
"There's a lot that people might be curious about, should they ever read and delve deep into my writing," said Crowley. "I want to be ready for the really probing, hard-hitting questions."
One aspect of her work that Crowley expects people might be interested in about her, if they're interested in anything at all, is her choice of character voice. "I'm a woman, so why do I so often choose to write from the male perspective?" said Crowley. "It's a fair question. I'll need to give that one some real thought."
Another more "fun" question, hitting on Crowley's more lighthearted side, will almost certainly involve her love of puns. "It would be ideal if I could come up with a pun about loving puns," said Crowley. "Just something silly. So far I haven't thought of anything, but I'm working on it."
Given the current invisibility of her work, Crowley acknowledged that time is not of the essence with regard to her interview preparation - which she says works out perfectly.
"The people who have read my work sometimes accuse me of taking my time to get to a point where anything actually happens," she said. "And now I can take all the time I need!"
