My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. A group of girlfriends, a bottle or three of wine, and chocolate can make just about anything easier to bear.

Q. What 3 personal qualities are most important to you?

A. Humor, compassion, integrity.

Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. By "fantasy" do you mean... oh, wait, is this a G-rated question? It is? Then I've got my fantasy profession. Writing never gets boring, I can do it in my pajamas, and the thought that I'm going to see my book in a store takes my breath away.

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. I just love the wording of this question. It's like, "We know there are MANY flaws -- probably too many to count -- but if you could only choose one (and it must be so hard to narrow it down), think of your greatest flaw, the one that makes people run away from you screaming. Um, I get distracted easily? Think impure thoughts about certain movie stars? Scarf down chocolate in front of my children and lie to them, telling them I'm eating fruit?

Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?

A. Nooo! Only five? They change all the time, but I love "Superman" by Five for Fighting, "No One" by Alicia Keys, "Romanza" by Andrea Bocelli, "Thunder Road" by Bruce Springsteen, and "Beautiful" by Christina Aguilera.
