My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Focus on your goal, and just keep plodding towards it with blinders on.
Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?
I love to perform. First as a ballet dancer, and now, when I go out to promote my books, I get to perform for audiences. Happiness to me is when I'm in the spotlight. I'm very lucky. I have a wonderful husband and children who are (knock on wood -- I am very superstitious) happy and healthy, who allow me to do what I love...which is basically to sit at my drafting table coloring every day, and occasionally stepping out into the limelight.
Q. Which living person do you most admire?
A. My mother, who is my greatest role model.
Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?
A. Harriet the Spy
Q. What’s your greatest fear?
A. That someone would sneak up on me while I'm sleeping and shave off one of my eyebrows.
