Q. What is your motto or maxim?

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

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

A. oh, that's a terrible, terrible thing to ask a foodie!

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. you mean, other than making an idiot out of myself?  Sharks.  And roller coasters.  I admit it, I'm a wuss.  But I'll happily go snorkeling, while I wouldn't get on a roller coaster if you paid me.

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. I go through phases, because once I realize I'm over-using something I try to delete it from my vocabulary.  Right now it's "Seriously?"

Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?

A. Oh, I would so love to be able to draw. I can see it all in my head, but . I can barely draw a straight line with a ruler.
