Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Focus on your goal, and just keep plodding towards it with blinders on.

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A.
A number of years ago I did a book with Lynne Cheney called A is for Abigail: An Almanac of Amazing American Women. In doing the research on these great American women in history, I was so awed and inspired by what these women were able to acheive -- and what they had to go through to give women of my generation and the next the ability to go after our own dreams with fewer stumbling blocks along the way. So many women, both nameless and well-known, worked so hard. I would be thrilled and honored to meet any one of them in order to say thanks.

Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. I don't have to fantasize, I live it every day! My studio is just steps off my bedroom, so I am fortunate to be living my fantasy.

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. I don't hold grudges.

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.
