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. Which living person do you most admire?

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

Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?

A. Under an umbrella on a sunny beach with a tropical drink in hand and my family by my side. My husband must be made to understand that the cabana boy comes with the private island. We can't return him!

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. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

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