Videos related to this author
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. If not now, when?
Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?
Well, of course, swords hammered into ploughshares and Total World Domination by people who think peace would be a pleasant change. But on a more personal level, good relationships, good books, good food, good music, writing going well, kids catapulting toward what they love, good health, movies with popcorn, a walk in the hills with my husband, a drive up the coast, a rainy day followed by brilliant sun only the sand is still wet and the ocean is grey. Daydreaming.
Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?
A. Actually. Really. Really. Actually. You got a problem with that? Really...
Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?
A. Warning: very old school songs ahead – Grapefruit Moon, Someone to Watch Over Me, Here Comes The Sun, Love is Just a Four Letter Word, and (just because I danced to it played on steel drums one starry night on the Equator) Whiter Shade of Pale.
Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?
A. Chocolate soufflé, but only if the whipped cream counts as part of the one thing. If not, a toss up between warm chocolate cake and ripe mangoes.
