My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. The day I stop learning is the day I throw in the towel.

Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. I sometimes dream I'm a librarian. I love the smell of a library.

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. For some reason, I have a real phobia about rolling down a hill backward in a car. No idea where that came from, but it made driving in San Francisco a challenge.

Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?

A. Oh, yeah, I can't narrow it down to five. Why don't I pick 5 artists instead? Anything by Paul Simon, Radiohead, Jack White, Ryan Adams, The Killers, Cyndi Lauper, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, The Flaming Lips ... Whoops! More than 5!

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. I'm proud to say the people I admire most in life are those closest to me - my husband, my son, my family, my friends.
