A. Karma is a boomerang. (One of my characters said it first!)
Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?
A. For me, the gift of midlife is that I’m finally being exactly who I really am. There’s great power in that.

Q. What 3 personal qualities are most important to you?
A. Humor, honesty, kindness.
Q. With whom in history do you most identify?
A. P.T. Barnum. I’m a direct descendant, and by the way, he did not say, “There’s a sucker born every minute.” He said, “There’s a customer born every minute.” I have updated that to, “There’s a reader born every minute.”
