My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. Only one? Far too many to list.

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. I don't have one, but I did. Long ago, I took a leap, packed up everything, and went to live in Tokyo. The decision was a huge risk and came with many unknowns, all of which I eventually overcame. Do something like that, and "your greatest fear" will evaporate.

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

A. Traveling, whether for a day or a week.

Q. What 3 personal qualities are most important to you?

A. Everything embodied in a great smile.
