Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Progress, not perfection.

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

A. A person with a naturally fast metabolism.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

A. Anne of Green Gables. I adore her.

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. Aragorn, from the Lord of the Rings Triology. But only if he came in the form of Viggo Mortensen. I would probably say, "Holy crap, you're hot." 

Kidding aside, I would love to meet Atticus Finch. I'd like to hear his impressions of the world, and how we have ended up where we are as a society. And then I would just soak up his gentle, quiet wisdom.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?

A. The Wicked Witch of the West. Poor gal, stuck in Glenda's shadow, and then gets a house dropped on her. She had it rough.
