Anna Elliott
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 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 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’s your greatest flaw?

A. Yikes, I feel like I'm back in middle school playing a game of truth or dare at a sleepover party. I guess I'll say my lack of ability to scrub and wax my kitchen floor unless my mother or mother-in-law are actually in the car on the way over to my house for a visit.

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. Probably my husband. He's pretty great.
