Q. What is your motto or maxim?

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

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

A. Well, at the time I'm writing this, I'm first-trimester pregnant with my second baby and hideously queasy, so nothing sounds especially appealing as a lifelong exclusive diet. Ugh. But going by my non-pregnant tastes, I'll say chocolate.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

A. Captain Wentworth, from Jane Austen's Persuasion.

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!

Q. What is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?

A. Well, my favorites are playing with my daughter and talking to my husband. But when I'm not doing either of those (or writing) you can usually find me with a book in my hands. I like running, cooking, and needlework, too.
