Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

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

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A.

Sitting in the backyard with my family on a summer evening, tired from a day of physical activities, sipping lemonade, smelling food on the grill and woodsmoke from the fire pit, listening to music. Or just looking at my daughter while she pretends to go on a bigfoot hunt~ that's pretty close to perfect happiness as well.

































Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

A. Roald Dahl's Matilda

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. I've got a cheek freckle that grows a little bigger every year and I roll my shoulders back a lot because I have slouching paranoia.

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.
