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 is your greatest achievement?

A. Right now I would say becoming a published novelist. But can you ask me again after February? (I'm expecting my first child so the answer could change!)

Q. What 3 personal qualities are most important to you?

A. Loyalty, compassion, integrity.

Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?

A. Nightswimming by REM, Time of Your Life by Green Day, A Long December by The Counting Crows, See The World by Gomez, Incommunicado by Jimmy Buffet

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.
