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. 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. With whom in history do you most identify?

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

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 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.
