Author Revealed

Karin Tanabe
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. "Don't sweat the small stuff!" I'm also a fan of: "Do crazy things with your hair while you still have hair to do it with."

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. Just one? Well, I hate talking things out, I'm stubborn and I can be way too competitive.

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. I absolutely detest rodents with tails. Weirdly, I'm fine if they don't have tails but rats and possums give me an extreme case of the hebe jebes!

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. Self-centeredness

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. Perfect happiness is feeling healthy, loved, inspired, free and with a plane ticket to an exotic locale in my hand! Throw in side-splitting laughter, friends and family, key lime pie, a 99.9 percent discount at Chanel and a sidewalk cafe in Paris and I may never leave.
