My Life in 8 Words
PHILADELPHIA FREE LIBRARY
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. "Don't pick it." My Mom told me that, and it applies to any number of situations.
Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?
A. A quiet afternoon, a down comforter, a fire in the fireplace, a great book. (Oh, and snacks. Maybe tea and shortbread).
Q. What is your greatest achievement?
A. I think I'm supposed to say something about my children or my books here, but honestly, any morning that I wake up and find that I've successfully charged the various electronic devices that I'll need, that's a good day.
Q. What’s your best quality?
A. I'm an excellent tipper, I know lots of dirty jokes, and I watch lots of bad reality TV. So if you're a struggling waitress who wants to talk about "America's Next Top Model," I'm your girl.
Q. What’s your fantasy profession?
A. Backup singer! I actually got to live the fantasy for a night when the Rock Bottom Remainders, an all-author supergroup, came to town, and I sang back-up on "Mustang Sally." I have no idea how I sounded, or even if my microphone was on, but I loved it, loved it, loved it.
