My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. "Write what you know" means learn more, not write less.

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. My parents. Sappy, but true.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. I'm not sure I believe in 'perfect' happiness, since the awareness of being happy also requires the knowledge that there is UNhappiness, and.. okay, being too philosophical, I know.



Perfect happiness for me, I guess, is that moment when you turn to share something -- a joke, a sight, a thought -- with someone, and they're right there, ready for the adventure, whatever it is. The moment of discovery, and being able to share it.



Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. Photographer. I mourn the slow demise of the darkroom in the age of digital photos; there was something very soothing about the process of turning negatives into finished photos.

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

A. The ability to laugh at oneself as needed, a desire to learn, and the strength to be gentle.
