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 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. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. By "fantasy" do you mean... oh, wait, is this a G-rated question? It is? Then I've got my fantasy profession. Writing never gets boring, I can do it in my pajamas, and the thought that I'm going to see my book in a store takes my breath away.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

A. I'm going out on a limb and saying Bridget Jones.

Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?

A. Nooo! Only five? They change all the time, but I love "Superman" by Five for Fighting, "No One" by Alicia Keys, "Romanza" by Andrea Bocelli, "Thunder Road" by Bruce Springsteen, and "Beautiful" by Christina Aguilera.
