Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Still time to figure that out. I'll have it posted on my tombstone.

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. Jesus. I'd like to know if the events of the past 2000 years have caused him to change his mind about anything.

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. Again, probably for others to say, but maybe it's that I have my own take on just about everything; and again, as above, a double-edged thing.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?

A. Raskolnikov - if you can call him a villain.

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. Prominent people are so worn down by overexposure I find it hard to really admire any of them. Instead these days I seem to be admiring nameless people I see who just keep doing what they have to, sometimes with humor and grace.
