Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. If you're bored, you have no one to blame but yourself.

Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?

A. Too many to narrow down to five - it changes from day to day. I have over 2,000 CDs that span every musical genre.

Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?

A. My secret dream would be to play in a rock band, but I have absolutely no musical talent. I can't even hum on key.

Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?

A. Truthfully, I'm envious of Baloo the Bear in Disney's Jungle Book. I always thought he had everything just where he wanted it to be.

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. Again, I'm not qualified to say. Maybe my intense curiousity about everything around me - that, in my opinion, is the most important quality a writer can have.
