My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

A. Bugs Bunny. I love trickster heroes (Ciara Griffin of my WVMP Radio series is a good example of my own). Bugs was always two or three (or more) steps ahead of his opponent and never had to resort to force to win the day. He was just cool.

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. When people name their pet peeves and it turns out to be something that I do.

Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?

A. Singing. I have a strong voice but am terrible at staying on-key. Which is a really bad combination, because it means I’m loud and painful.

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. If you mean physical trait, it’s probably my smile. I must have a weird face, because whenever I’m not smiling, people ask if I’m upset. Nine times out of ten, I’m just thinking. Then they insist I must be annoyed at something, and eventually it becomes true. If you mean personality trait, people usually say I’m incredibly nice. I’m proud of this, because it means I’ve totally fooled 99% of those who’ve met me.
