Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Just Do It. (It was mine before Nike's.)

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. That I march to a slightly different drummer.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. Right now, I find it in little things: listening to my seven-year-old son read to me; meeting a friend for coffee; writing a sentence that makes me proud; eating good Indian food; driving down a rural Maine road on a sunny day with good music and lots of farms and grazing cows and horses as beautiful scenery.

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. I would say a big thanks to Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony and fellow suffragists. How amazing were they?

Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?

A. I am not a goody-two-shoes, I swear. But I hate villains, even the fun ones.
