My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. It's the set of the sail, and not the gale, that determines the way we go.
Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?
A. I would love to meet Jane Austen, but I'd be far too awed to say anything to her. Plus, if I did, I'm pretty sure she'd find some reason to skewer me in her next novel. After all, this is the woman who once wrote, "For what do we live, but to make sport for our neighbors and laugh at them in our turn?"
Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?
A. One word: home.
Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?
A. Paddling down Isaac Lake in Bowron Provincial Park.
Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?
A. Charlotte Cavatica.
