Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. "Anything that I've ever done that was ultimately worthwhile ... initially scared me to death." ~Betty Bender

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. I like to say that I'm not striving for happiness because happiness is often based on circumstances. Happiness can come and go.
OK, now that I've philosophized a bit, I'll say that the moments I've been perfectly happy (content) are when I look around and see my husband and kiddos (and now my son and daughter-in-love) talking, laughing, maybe playing a board game together. 

Being a family. Enjoying one another.

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. I tend to put the bar too high--be a perfectionist. Of course, you wouldn't know that if you looked at my desk.

Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. Oh. My. Word. One thing? Greek yogurt with extra fruit added. (I'm counting that as one thing.)

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. I'm still working on what I hope will be my greatest achievement: being a wife and mom. And doing it well.

I'm on deadline for my third novel and I just realized -- just realized -- why I write books.

I write books because . . . life is messy. And I write stories that wade into that mess. Stories about how we make a mess of our lives . . . or someone else messes up or lives . . .

and yet, there is still hope.

There is redemption.

There is the reality of "But God . . . " in the midst of the mess.

Life is messy.

Romance is messy.

That's reality.

And that's why I write books.

Because, as I like to say, there's more to the Happily Ever After than the Fairy Tales tell us.
