My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. The day I stop learning is the day I throw in the towel.

Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. I sometimes dream I'm a librarian. I love the smell of a library.

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. There are a lot to choose from, and that's not false modesty speaking. I am supremely stubborn, and sometimes it takes me too long to really listen.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. Honestly, my weekends rock. I love reconnecting with my family over the breakfast table, sipping some of that famous Seattle coffee and watching my toddler bang away on his high chair as we plan out our day. That's happiness right there.

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. For some reason, I have a real phobia about rolling down a hill backward in a car. No idea where that came from, but it made driving in San Francisco a challenge.
