My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Get the most out of life. It's shorter than you think.

Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. I like a good steak, but I'd certainly get tired of them if that was my meal the rest of my days.

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. I've said in book talks that I would have loved to have been a reporter during World War II and to have covered Wild Bill Donovan. He was such a fascinating character. And I probably would have covered him. Donovan liked to leak to reporters.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

A. I love the heroes in Hemingway's novels.

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. Not having another book idea.
