Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. So powerful is the light of unity that it can illuminate the whole earth

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. That's a tough one to choose, but I'll say Abigail Adams.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. Perfect happiness is: Listening to our new baby's tiny hummingbird heart beating. Hearing my daughter sing the alphabet song. Lying in bed next to my husband. (Although ideally not while he's snoring). When the characters in the book I'm writing really start talking to me and completely surprise me with what they have to say.

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

A. Integrity, kindness, and sense of humor. Although if we're talking qualities I look for in a life mate, willingness to do laundry is right up there.

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. I guess that depends whether we're talking about in writing or in real life. In writing, my copy editor pointed out to me--very rightly--that I modify way too many verbs with "slightly" or "briefly." Then in real life, I just recently overheard my 2 year old talking to her baby doll and saying in a very patient voice, "Oh, babydoll, why did you do that?" And I thought, Goodness, I have no idea where she could have picked that up!
