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 greatest flaw?

A. I'm much too impatient. I live in a near-constant state of irritability, though my irritation is usually directed at myself more than at anyone else.

Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?

A. Truthfully, I'm envious of Baloo the Bear in Disney's Jungle Book. I always thought he had everything just where he wanted it to be.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?

A. Moriarty has no peer, at least in my opinion.

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. That's not for me to say.
