My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Don't be too embarrassing.

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. I have a massive head. I mean that literally. Not that I don't have a healthy ego, but my actual skull is extremely large. Hats can be a challenge.

Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. Starting right fielder, Boston Red Sox.

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

A. I'm not sure if we're talking fictional or real here, but I'll go for an obvious one: Abraham Lincoln. I'd say, "Mr. President, it's an honor." Then, I'd invite him over for cake, or pie, or whatever we had, whatever he wanted. The larder is open to the 16th president.

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. I try as hard as I can to understand why people do what they do. I don't believe I exactly deserve a medal for that or anything, though.
