My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. If the opportunity to take a relaxing shower presents itself, take it.

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

A. Being a mom.

Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. BLTs on buttermilk bread, with very crispy bacon, cheap iceberg lettuce, juicy tomatoes, and no mayo.

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. Those biscuit cans that have you press a spoon along the dotted line or pull a strip of paper until it opens in your face with a POP!!! The suspense of opening those things stops my heart every time. Inheriting Alzheimer's and passing it down to my daughters is a very real fear that I try to avoid thinking about as well, but man, those biscuit cans are crazy.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A.

Sitting in the backyard with my family on a summer evening, tired from a day of physical activities, sipping lemonade, smelling food on the grill and woodsmoke from the fire pit, listening to music. Or just looking at my daughter while she pretends to go on a bigfoot hunt~ that's pretty close to perfect happiness as well.
