Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. What I do best is drag other people into my fantasy world.

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. I am recklessly loyal. (Credit where credit is due: The phrase "recklessly loyal" comes from the book NICK OF TIME, by one of my favorite authors, Anne Spencer Lindbergh.)

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. "Efficacious." Like maybe if I say it a lot, then I will actually BE it!

Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. When I was little, I wanted to be a writer, actress, and singer. One out of three isn't bad, esp. considering that I can't sing.

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

A. Camp Emerson, the overnight camp in the Berkshires that I used to go to.
