Poet/Writer Meme--Vital Stats

Deborah at 32 Poems posted this meme a bit ago, and I thought it would be fund to adapt to the writers and book reviewers who read my site.

Simply copy the questions and answer them on your blog. I won't tag anyone, so it's up to you if you want to do it in the comments or in your own post.
