My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Abigail Tarttelin
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Beauty fades but crazy lasts forever. (Thank you, Lee Anna Woodcock of Atria fame!)

Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?

A. Working on the Golden Boy TV series, hahaha.

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. Oh my gosh, I don't even want to think about this!!!

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. It's really difficult to answer this question without sounding dorky! I really like a balance in life, but I like to do things intensely too, so I guess my perfect, happy life would look like: a few months of intense, sweaty, fun work, followed by a solid month or more out in nature - maybe in Maine on a lake! - paddleboarding, watching wildlife, with family and friends.

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. Totally. And I'm British, but live part of the time in the states, so my friends in the UK tease me about this a LOT.
