Author Revealed

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. Which living person do you most admire?

A. I admire bits and pieces of just about everyone I know.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

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

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.
