My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Create as much as possible, love deeply, and enjoy every moment.

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. Failing my children.

Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?

A. I wouldn't mind being a divine entity for a while. All powerful, maybe. But, not forever. Just a quick trial day to get a feel for it and then back to being me.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. On a cool sunny day, I sit in the shade of a tree at the edge of a beach. A light breeze blows across, and ruffles the pages of my book. I can hear my kids playing in the sand to my side. My wife dozes contentedly on our blanket. Birds chirp quietly in the distance. Moisture glistens as it runs down the side of my cold beverage. Yeah, that about sums it up.

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. Thinking about myself before others. It's hard not to do, but I'm working on it.
