My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. My hair.

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

A. Either Bora Bora, or Lake Tahoe. It depends on the season.

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. On a cool sunny day, I sit in the shade of a tree at the edge of a beach. A light breeze blows across, and ruffles the pages of my book. I can hear my kids playing in the sand to my side. My wife dozes contentedly on our blanket. Birds chirp quietly in the distance. Moisture glistens as it runs down the side of my cold beverage. Yeah, that about sums it up.
