The Truth of Right Now

My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Be kind.

Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?

A. Does speaking French fluently count as a talent? If yes, then that. If no, then playing the violin . . . well.

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. Like, I know, actually, seriously, awesome, totally, and yeah. I also curse a lot, but I won’t list any of those words here.

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

A. I just looked at weather.com and the temperature right now in Paris is 62 degrees and it’s 7:30 PM there. That sounds perfect to me. So I would be sitting in a café in the Latin Quarter people watching, intermittently writing, and sipping some delicious café au lait, because my acid reflux problems magically disappear when I’m in Paris.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A.

Imperfectly.
