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 acquire any talent, what would it be?
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.
