Originally from Milltown, New Jersey, she traded bumper-to-bumper traffic, excellent pizza, and summer days down the shore for scenic roads, bears, no pizza delivery, and the irresistible allure of an old stone house surrounded by forests in Pennsylvania’s Endless Mountains Region.

Laura Wiess
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Live, and let live.

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

A. A powerful singing voice. Chaka Khan, Melissa Etheridge and Janis Joplin have always knocked me out.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

A. I never have just one favorite of anything so it's a tie between Auntie Mame, Anne Shirley and Moll Flanders.

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. "But why?" and "I've been thinking..."

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

A. Food. (Oh, come on. You must have expected that.) More specific? Pasta, pickles, cheese, good bread. Or sicilian pizza, extra sauce, extra chese. Or vegetables. (Good God, I just can't do it. I simply cannot pick just one of ANYTHING.)
