Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Progress, not perfection.

Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?

A. Playing the violin or fiddle.

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

A. Right where I am (I chose to live here). However, I'd like to have a pied-a-terre in Boston or New York City so that I can keep up with cultural events.

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. I laugh and smile a lot.

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. That I won't utilize all the talents and opportunities I have. I've done well with writing books, but I'd like to do more with songwriting, solo singing, and playing musical instruments.
