Ayaan Hirsi Ali

They're - FBI agents are some of the finest people you'll find anyplace in the country or the world. And I'm lucky to have the opportunity to work with them.
I had the easiest publishing experience in the entire world. I sent out fifteen courier letters to agents, got five no replies, nine rejections and one I want to see it. A month later I had an agent. Another month later I had a three book deal with Little Brown.

I was going to move to New York after college and had no interest in pilot season. I'd seen what happened on TV shows because of my dad, and I didn't want to open myself up to that.

Criminal conduct by police officers, federal agents, and their confederates cannot be tolerated and will be met with the full force of the law.
'Free Agents' was an awesome experience. I never play the glam girl in anything, so that was a new experience.

Every day felt like I was turning into an awesome drag queen.
