My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Focus on your goal, and just keep plodding towards it with blinders on.
Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?
I love to perform. First as a ballet dancer, and now, when I go out to promote my books, I get to perform for audiences. Happiness to me is when I'm in the spotlight. I'm very lucky. I have a wonderful husband and children who are (knock on wood -- I am very superstitious) happy and healthy, who allow me to do what I love...which is basically to sit at my drafting table coloring every day, and occasionally stepping out into the limelight.
Q. What’s your greatest flaw?
A. I've never been very good at following rules...
Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?
A. My favorite city is London -- I wish I had an English accent! Like Ruby in my book, I'm hoping one day to have tea with the Queen.
Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?
A. Banana Cream Pie! My mother still makes it for me every time I come home (occasionally she'll make two -- one for the family and one just for me!)
