My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. If you're bored, you have no one to blame but yourself.

Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. Rock star. Really.

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. I know it sounds pretty obsessive, but I dread every having a moment in my life when I can't think of anything to do. I don't want to become an old man who has lost interest in everything.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

A. The Wart in T.H. White's The Once and Future King.

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. My personal heroes are Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr., John Steinbeck and Admiral James Stockdale. I realize I don't have Holmes's intellect, Steinbeck's compassionate writing excellence, or Stockdale's personal courage. But I can at least do my best to emulate them.
