My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. I'd say that my motto is, to succeed you have to put your muscle behind your passion and push. But if I can also include a maxim, my favorite quote comes from Shakespeare, "There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy." It reminds me to be open to the vast possibilities of the universe and I find that inspiring.

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. "Suddenly." My agent is forever chiding me for overuse of the word "suddenly" in my writing.

Q. What do you regret most?

A. I don't believe in regrets. But there are certainly times I wish I'd handled a particular situation or interaction differently. And I do wish I had more time, both to get things done and to savor moments.

Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. Writing children's books/young adult novels. Popular adult novelists are popular, but popular children's authors are deities! I wish I had it in me, but I don't.

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

A. Pasta, either with pesto or my husband's carbonara recipe.
