My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

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

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. When my husband accidentally throws away post-its that have writing ideas and manuscript notes on them.

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. Those biscuit cans that have you press a spoon along the dotted line or pull a strip of paper until it opens in your face with a POP!!! The suspense of opening those things stops my heart every time. Inheriting Alzheimer's and passing it down to my daughters is a very real fear that I try to avoid thinking about as well, but man, those biscuit cans are crazy.

Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. Woodcarver

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 :)
