A. I would like to meet my maternal great-mother Sophie Egemo who came across from Norway. She raised 4 girls and 4 boys and never learned much English. I want to know about her life in Norway (I know she skiied to school) and why she left, and what she thought about this new country.
A. Quitting my safe secure career to do what I've wanted to do for years---write!
A. No one person, but a whole host who go quietly about doing what must be done. My heros are school bus drivers, day care providers, and anyone who does the right thing.
