How do you pronounce your name? 

You say 'Schaar' like a pirate.

Have you published other books? 

No. Another novel, 'Nothing to Wear' was slated for publication with a boutique publishing house that didn't make it through the pandemic. But there are several exciting projects in the works now including poems, plays, and the continuation of the recommended Storybook series.

What is your quest?

That's easy! I seek the Grail.

Who is your favorite author?

Don Marquis.

What is the capital of Assyria?

I don't know that.


(Assyria is an ancient kingdom that lasted from the 25th century to the 7th century BC. As such, no one knows what the capital of Assyria was, if it even had one.)
