My Life in 8 Words
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. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?
A. My teenage son and I just participated in PizzaQuest 2011, an event that we made up. Pizza from a different source for dinner for six nights straight, comparing and contrasting. 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 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.
Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?
A. James Bond is pretty cool. So are Robert B. Parker's Spenser, though, and Ross Macdonald's Lew Archer. And Harry Potter. And...this could take a while. Let's just settle on Atticus Finch (To Kill a Mockingbird) for now.
