Author Revealed

Q. What do you regret most?

A. That I stayed in a marriage without real love for far too many years. But two wonderful children came out of that marriage - so, as such, my regrets are really nominal ones.

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. I am very disciplined. I also talk to myself - which is either a sign of the creative process at work or sheer insanity... or both.

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. Our President, Barack Obama - an intellectual, a statesman, a street-wise politician, and so amazingly Zen, given that he has the hardest job in the world.

Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. Conducting the Berlin Philharmonic or playing a piano jazz gig at the Village Vanguard - two things that are not going to happen within my lifetime.
