A. I'd like to be multilingual. A new language opens so many doors.
Q. With whom in history do you most identify?
A. Not one in particular, but people like Churchill who have overcome the insurmountable despite endless setbacks and great odds.
Q. What’s your fantasy profession?
A. Writing better and faster.
Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?
