My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Progress, not perfection.

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. Generosity. Not necessarily with money, but with my time, sympathy, advice, and occasionally my house or car.

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. I laugh and smile a lot.

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. That I won't utilize all the talents and opportunities I have. I've done well with writing books, but I'd like to do more with songwriting, solo singing, and playing musical instruments.

Q. What do you regret most?

A. Not having gotten a college scholarship. I was a sometimes-lazy high school student and had to pay for college.
