My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

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. 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.

Q. What 3 personal qualities are most important to you?

A. Humility. Kindness. Intelligence.

Q. What do you regret most?

A. That hotel time share presentation--THREE HOURS of my life that I will NEVER GET BACK.

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. Alexander Fleming.  I'm fascinated with scientific discoveries.  They're the most incredible mix of creativity and discipline and genius and dumb luck. 

I guess I'd ask him what kind of sandwich he left out.  I'd like to think we owe the discovery of penicillin to a good old PB&J, but he was Scottish so I think it was more likely some gnarly cheese and marmite thing.  Oh well.
