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 be any person or thing, who or what would it be?

A. Some kind of dessert. Molten chocolate cake topped with vanilla ice cream perhaps. My life span would be brief, but it would make somebody VERY happy.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

A. Jane Eyre

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. It’s a tie between unnecessary chewing noises and the non-word “irregardless.”

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. For one thing, becoming an author! I recently realized that my fantasies of having a novel with my name on the cover go back to age 8! But I also think getting through some incredibly difficult times in my life with my sense of humor still in tact might be my REAL greatest achievement.
