My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. If it's worth doing, it's worth trying to do it better the next time.

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. "When do I get paid?" Hey, I'm a freelancer!

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. Moths. I don't know if it's a "greatest fear" so much as it's "what repulses you the most?" They're just nasty, and then when you kill them (which you have to do, or they'll kill you) that moth dust gets everywhere. Possibly moths in clown makeup, with those big shoes, would be worse, but I'm not sure about that.

Having survived that, I think pizza would have to be up there. But that might mean giving up chocolate (and, by extension, chocolate chip cookies). Hmmm... going to have to think on this a while.

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. Sometimes I'm a little too perfect...
