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. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?

A. Probably right here, at home, surrounded by family. I have always been split between homebody and world traveller, and right now I think it's a 51/49 percent split in favor of homebody. But there's always a part of me that's dreaming of London, Krakow...

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. People who are self-absorbed and/or narrow minded.

Q. What is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?

A. Does napping count as an occupation? I'm a huge napper, but spending time with family, outlet shopping with my mom, running, and going to Philadelphia Eagles games are also high on the list.

Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?

A. Myself. I don't think I'd trade.
