My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. What I do best is drag other people into my fantasy world.

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

A. Dark chocolate. My days would not be many, as I would probably die quickly from a lack of nutrients. But they would be a great last few days.

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. I once organized 100 people to play Tetris in the windows of a building.

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. I am recklessly loyal. (Credit where credit is due: The phrase "recklessly loyal" comes from the book NICK OF TIME, by one of my favorite authors, Anne Spencer Lindbergh.)

Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. When I was little, I wanted to be a writer, actress, and singer. One out of three isn't bad, esp. considering that I can't sing.
