Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Oh, I don't have a motto, and I don't read maxim ;) Really, life is too fluid for me to pick one motto and stick to it. I adapt.

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

A. Is flight a talent? I guess it is if you can fly really well. More realistically, I've always wanted to be able to paint.

Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?

A. I've always wanted to go to Greece and visit the ruins. Plus, they've got sunlight and the ocean, so it really all comes together.

Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?

A. I have a really eclectic taste in music. I love artists like Tori Amos and Ani Difranco, and I'm also a long-time Hanson fan. Also, really poppy stuff that's good for dancing. Picking artist is easier than songs. Songs would be next to impossible (too many to choose!) I'm being difficult, aren't I?

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

A. Brilliance, compassion and humor.
