Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. If the opportunity to take a relaxing shower presents itself, take it.

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

A. Knowing all languages. Or singing really well.

Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. BLTs on buttermilk bread, with very crispy bacon, cheap iceberg lettuce, juicy tomatoes, and no mayo.

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. Scoring a winning header as a high school freshman in a varsity soccer match against our arch rivals. Because glory like that never dies. Giving birth with no pain medication is a close second.

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. Julia Child, because she embraced her passion (cooking) and worked extremely hard to make a career out of it, despite lots of rejection along the way :)
