My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. "Love is a verb." Also, "You don't get what you don't ask for."

Q. What do you regret most?

A. I regret the "down" time that I seem to need between books. I am so aware of the limited time that I have to write in this life, and have so many novels I want to write.

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. My laughter. It's loud and audacious!

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. Selfishness, and a lack of compassion for others. But I have grammatical pet peeves, too, lots of them! "Comprised of." Using adverbs improperly. "Like" when "such as" or "as if" is correct. Failing to use the subjunctive tense when it is appropriate -- as in, "Dance like no one is watching." Yikes!

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

A. I would be myself, warts and all. :)
