My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Don't be too embarrassing.

Q. What do you regret most?

A. This is like asking a parent to choose their favorite child. I just can't. My personal history is strewn with massive errors in judgment. They're all precious to me.

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. What are your 5 favorite songs?

A. "Jolene" - Dolly Parton, "Don't Forget Me" - Harry Nilsson, "Glad and Sorry" - The Faces, "1952 Vincent Black Lightning" - Richard Thompson, "The Beast in Me" - Nick Lowe,

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.
