My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Slow and steady wins the race.

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A.

I would like to meet Virginia Woolf (who would, I believe, not be a bit interested in meeting me at all!). But if I could meet her, I would say:

"Thank you. At a key point in my journey as a reader, your work showed me what writing could be. I have never forgotten the excitement of reading your work for the first time."

I would also tell her I am not afraid of her, but she wouldn't understand this since the play, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf, was written long after she died!

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. Kindness.

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

A. Math skills. If you had mine, you'd know why I'd consider this to be a talent.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. A life shared with a loving partner in which you both get to do work you that is meaningful to you. That feels to me like a life with meaning and purpose ... perfect happiness for me.
