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. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. I'm sitting on the couch with my laptop, my husband is beside me watching hockey, and my kids are sleeping peacefully in their beds.  Add a pound of dark chocolate and that's heaven.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

A. It's a tie: Scout Finch and Anne Shirley

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

A. Cereal. I know, what am I, sixteen? But it's tasty and filling and fortified so I probably wouldn't get scurvy and die. And yay for carbs.

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. My mom, of course! She's smart and sweet and makes everyone feel better about themselves. Also, the woman can destroy me in an arm wrestle.
