My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Carpe Diem- Seize the day. I would much rather make a mistake then to have never tried at all.

Q. What is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?

A. Reading. I am one of those people who breaks out into hives if I don't have a stack of good books ready to go.

Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?

A. Home curled up with a good book and my dog.

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. My greatest fear would be to let someone important to me down. However, I also freak out over spiders and other creepy multi-legged creatures. Sometimes I worry they crawl into my mouth when I'm sleeping.

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. I can be a total drama queen in certain situations. Sometimes I am the calm and rational one, but without warning it can switch. I'm sure this makes me a joy to live with.
