My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. A paraphrase of something I once heard: As you go the way of life, you will see a great chasm. Jump. It is not as wide as you think.

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. Many, but Springsteen for one, for his live shows, honesty, and hard work. Once saw a bootleg video of his personal PRACTICE SESSIONS for his live shows. Really impressive.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

A. Limiting myself to the characters of deceased authors, I'd say Jean Valjean (in the book).

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. I rid myself of those long ago.

Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?

A. I'd like to be multilingual. A new language opens so many doors.
