My Life in 8 Words
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. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?
A. I would love, love, love to be able to sing really well. I mean, I can carry a tune and I do a pretty mean Wheels on the Bus with my little girl. But I would love to have a really Broadway-star quality voice. Sadly, not to be--I guess I'll just have to write a book about a heroine with a fabulous singing voice someday!
Q. What’s your best quality?
A. Oh, goodness, I am horrible at answering questions like this. I'll defer to my husband, who says patience.
