My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Robert Neubecker
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. your life is what your thoughts make it- Marcus Aurelius

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

A. Well, of course I draw, but after spending the first third of my life as a bookish geek, I enjoy nature and individual sports such as Surfing and Skiing.

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. My self absorption.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. Wow- You ask the easy ones. My children are small enough that we can all sleep together in our king size bed. My wife, my ten year old, my six year old, my huge German Shepard and all three cats. I always sleep so well those nights. It's an ancient vignette, and repeated all over the world in every country and every culture.

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. You'd have to ask someone else, but I'd say my optimism, although it's a bit bruised at times. Then I spend time with my kids, or helping others, or just go for a walk in nature.
