My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Deb Caletti
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. "Knowledge is power."

Q. What do you regret most?

A. Letting bad people into my life, and letting them stay there much too long.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. A good book, a pool, a cold drink on a sunny day, with my loved ones cheerfully occupied nearby.

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. "Oh *&#!" and "Damn it, where is it?!!" and "Get out of there!" (That's to the dog). Also, "Love you," and "Hey sweetie" and "Give it a go, you never know" and "Drive carefully" (see question #5). "You won't believe what happened" is being used a lot lately. So is "Oh, I'm a lucky woman." If the backspace key were a word, that would be in there, too.

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. People talking loudly in the library. I also hate it when someone picks up a book I'm in the middle of and starts reading and perusing. It's like cutting in between a happily dancing couple. I'm very clutchy about my books.
