Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Karma is a boomerang. (One of my characters said it first!)

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. I always skip the historical questions, too.

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. It’s a three-way tie between my husband and two kids. Aww.

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. My literary agent once told me it was Aww. I think she actually called it a verbal tic. That’s the kind of agent you want to have.

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. P.T. Barnum. I’m a direct descendant, and by the way, he did not say, “There’s a sucker born every minute.” He said, “There’s a customer born every minute.” I have updated that to, “There’s a reader born every minute.”
