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. 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. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. I just love the wording of this question. It's like, "We know there are MANY flaws -- probably too many to count -- but if you could only choose one (and it must be so hard to narrow it down), think of your greatest flaw, the one that makes people run away from you screaming. Um, I get distracted easily? Think impure thoughts about certain movie stars? Scarf down chocolate in front of my children and lie to them, telling them I'm eating fruit?

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.
