The Truth of Right Now

My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Be kind.

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. My hair. According to my friends, it’s unmistakable even from a sizable distance.

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. 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. 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.
