My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Your body is your temple and live by your heart.
Q. What is your greatest achievement?
A. My greatest achievement is in progress. I'd love to get back to you on this one: after my kids are accepted to colleges AND I've managed to save enough to fund their tuitions! But if I can manage to live each day fully, present and aware of my actions and interactions with those around me, then that's the daily work that applies towards a greater whole.
Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?
A. For our honeymoon, I became scuba certified and voila, another underwater world revealed itself. I've always admired the camaraderie of dolphins. That's what we call the social network.
Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?
A. During my TV segments, I have to be very cautious about the word "absolutely." It's my go-to word that's fancier than "yes"...but I can absolutely use it too often, absolutely.
Q. What is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?
A. I adore cooking up a storm. There is no greater feeling in the world than nourishing those around me with wholesome, home-cooked food. I could skip the dishes, but I otherwise love the process.
