Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

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

Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?

A. Any of the baddies from Grimm's fairy tales.

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. I really dislike confrontation and tend to avoid it.

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.
