My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Be kind to yourself. (My mom says it to me all the time, possibly because she knows I need permission.)

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. Alexander Fleming.  I'm fascinated with scientific discoveries.  They're the most incredible mix of creativity and discipline and genius and dumb luck. 

I guess I'd ask him what kind of sandwich he left out.  I'd like to think we owe the discovery of penicillin to a good old PB&J, but he was Scottish so I think it was more likely some gnarly cheese and marmite thing.  Oh well.

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. Surviving childbirth, then going on to really love being a mother. I had my doubts about both beforehand.

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

A. Inside Tina Fey's brain.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?

A. I've been staring at this question for a half hour. I think that means it's time to admit I don't have one. It also means I have time management issues.
