My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Be kind to yourself. (My mom says it to me all the time, possibly because she knows I need permission.)
Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?
A. I'd be my husband, because then I'd still be us, but I wouldn't have to be me. It's complicated.
Q. What’s your best quality?
A. I'm pretty good at do-overs, both giving them and taking them.
Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?
A. People who take themselves too seriously.
Q. What is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?
A. Running, knitting, reading, playing the violin--but never all four at the same time. Only knitting and reading can be done concurrently, and yes, I've tried all other combinations.
