Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Life owes me nothing, no matter how hard I work. Whatever good comes to me in the end is simply a gift and a blessing.

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. The inability to say no when asked for a favor.

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. Actually I use the word actually way too much in conversation.

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. Raising a family.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. Sitting down with a cup of coffee at sunrise every morning to write exactly what I want to write and to be worried about nothing in that moment except how to make the words sing. Life is too complicated to let this happen very often, but sometimes it all comes together and my god is it magic and does it ever make me happy.
