My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Your body is your temple and live by your heart.
Q. What is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?
A. I adore cooking up a storm. There is no greater feeling in the world than nourishing those around me with wholesome, home-cooked food. I could skip the dishes, but I otherwise love the process.
Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?
A. I was raised a musician on multiple instruments, but I so wish that piano came naturally. You can only sweat so much.
Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?
A. Watching my children play and nap at an isolated beach, where the sun warms the skin while we eat ice cream cones, watch dad surf in the distance and decorate sand castles (more like sand mounds) with feathers, shells and sticks.
Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?
A. Delete "historical" from the question above and it would be Lady Gaga: what were you thinking with the raw meat dress? Honestly? And don't tell me you donated the chops to charity afterwards.
