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 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. What 3 personal qualities are most important to you?

A. Loyalty, compassion, integrity.

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.

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.
