My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Create as much as possible, love deeply, and enjoy every moment.

Q. What do you regret most?

A. I'm pretty good here. Not much that I regret.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?

A. This one is tough. I really like the tragic ones. Frankenstein's monster, Darth Vader or even Capt. Ahab (The whale is the hero of that one, right?)

Q. What 3 personal qualities are most important to you?

A. Kindness, intellect, self confidence.

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. If we are talking historical literary character, I'd go with The Fool, from King Lear. This might be partially due to loving the book Fool by Christopher Moore, but I loved Lear when I studied it in college and always wondered about this character. He seems smart and put together, but he follows this raving mad man around the countryside. I'd want to know why and what he got out of it.
