My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Progress, not perfection.

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. What are your 5 favorite songs?

A. Oh, wow. They change all of the time. "King of Anything" and "Jar of Hearts" are my current faves. And anything from the 80's, really. My kids think I'm weird.

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. Perfectionism and indiscriminate swearing.

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. My children and my sobriety.
