My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. You deserve a fabulous life!

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. My first response to that question is: my life. However, in saying that, I realize that my happiness is not something that "just happened". It took a good deal of trial and error, constantly seeking insight to put the pieces together.

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

A. Wherever I am is exactly where I want to be.

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. I wouldn't say it's fear, but I have certain areas that concern me, like the rising level of poverty, substance abuse, homelessness, and for many, hopelessness.  I would like to see children and adults have greater access to educational opportunities and the affordability of that is concerning.
