Julia will appear in Angela Amman’s first novel, to be released at a later date.

What is #1 on your bucket list?

I don’t have a bucket list. When everything you’ve worked for your whole life crashes into oblivion, the future looks awfully bleak.

What do you hate most about yourself?

Well, that’s a loaded question.

What is your favorite physical trait?

I would have answered in a million different ways in another lifetime, but now it’s my ability to perform on even the bleakest stages.

Describe your personality in two words.

Adaptive and resolute

If you could have dinner with anyone living or dead, who would it be?

Anna Pavlova — we need to talk about the Dying Swan.

Fast Five with Angela Amman, author

What is your #1 on your bucket list?

My bucket list changes with my mood, but currently I’d love to take my family on an extended European adventure for wine, cheese, and a walking tour of Gaudi architecture.

What do you hate most about yourself?

That’s between my journal and my favorite pen.

What is your favorite physical trait?

My brain. It’s the one thing I feel confident I can keep working on and improving. Everything else fades.

Describe your personality in two words.

Empathetic and sarcastic — the combination gets me in trouble.

If you could have dinner with anyone living or dead, who would it be?

Unlike my bucket list, this one doesn’t change: my dad.
