My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. A little bit of nonsense goes a long way.

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. I have a very strong sense of follow-through.

Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. Since I've had teeth, my favorite meal has been noodles with butter, no parsley. To this day, if I don't eat pasta multiple times a week, I get twitchy (and I still hate parsley).

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. I've had the same two best friends since sixth grade, and in the words of Mandy, they are two of my "most favorite people in the world, at least most of the time."

Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. Broadway diva. Unfortunately, I am just short of being "tone deaf with two left feet."
