Author Revealed

Sarah Pekkanen
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. A group of girlfriends, a bottle or three of wine, and chocolate can make just about anything easier to bear.

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. I like most people, and I don't take offense easily. Unless you mess with my kids. Then I'm like the Mob.

Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. Baked sweet potatoes dipped in chocolate. I'd eat the insides on days when I was feeling virtuous, and lick off the chocolate on my decadent days.

Q. What do you regret most?

A. Not appreciating my education more when I was in college. Plus certain fashion and grooming choices (that spiral perm was not my friend, and when it grew out, the top half of my hair was stick-straight, and the bottom half was pure frizz).

Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?

A. Singing so well on "American Idol" that Simon is reduced to a stuttering, quivering mess.
