My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Can't Hurt To Try It. Unless We're Talking Sword Juggling. Or Spam.

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. Just and really. Sometimes it fits with the voice of the character, but I think that might just be make making really bad excuses. And I like to start sentences with "and". I have a friend who reads my early drafts and always points that out! And I just think that's really mean. Just kidding. Really.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. Good friends and family at a bonfire on the beach (which must include s'mores), someone strumming a guitar, and a meteor shower in the sky. Forgetting the logistics of electrical outlets in the sand, if there could miraculously be a hot tub there, that would pretty much be heaven.

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. Oprah Winfrey. She manages to be vulnerable and powerful at the same time and I think that's the mark of a true leader. Plus, I used to work as a film publicist and had a chance to work with her on the press tour for the film Beloved. In addition to being a lovely person to work with, she checked out a night early from the Presidential Suite at the Four Seasons, and offered the suite to my coworkers and me instead. Let me just say, Tom Cruise is not the only one who has jumped on Oprah's couch!

Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?

A. Chili. I traveled for a year after college to 42 countries all on my own and on the very cheap (and it was amazing). The two continents I didn't get to were South America and Antarctica. So if I were in Chili right now, I'd have my feet on South American soil, while I tried to hitch a boat ride to Antarctica.
