Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Don't be too embarrassing.

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. It's a tie: 1) Not diligent with questionnaires; 2) I get hurt feelings too often.

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

A. I'm not sure if we're talking fictional or real here, but I'll go for an obvious one: Abraham Lincoln. I'd say, "Mr. President, it's an honor." Then, I'd invite him over for cake, or pie, or whatever we had, whatever he wanted. The larder is open to the 16th president.

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. Some very unpleasant death - to drown, to suffocate, to be slowly eaten, you get the idea. Grim. Let's move on.

Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?

A. It be cool to be eagle for a little while, do some soaring. But not for an indefinite period. Maybe I can just be a shape changer? I could try out being a lion, too.
