Bestselling Author Pam Jenoff: Almost Home
My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. I'd say that my motto is, to succeed you have to put your muscle behind your passion and push. But if I can also include a maxim, my favorite quote comes from Shakespeare, "There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy." It reminds me to be open to the vast possibilities of the universe and I find that inspiring.
Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?
A. Pasta, either with pesto or my husband's carbonara recipe.
Q. What is your greatest achievement?
A. Right now I would say becoming a published novelist. But can you ask me again after February? (I'm expecting my first child so the answer could change!)
Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?
A. A good morning of writing, a satisfying run, a meal with my family and a nap. To me perfect happiness has nothing to do with possessions or material things, it's all about having the time to do the things I enjoy with the people I love.
Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?
A. People who are self-absorbed and/or narrow minded.
