Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. “You pile up enough tomorrows, and you’ll find you've collected nothing but a lot of empty yesterdays. I don't know about you, but I'd like to make today worth remembering.” (Prof. Harold Hill in Meredith Willson's THE MUSIC MAN).

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. My friends would say that whichever historical figure I'm currently writing about is one whose name they hear way too often! Sometimes, they feel compelled to remind me that these people are not still alive.

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. Honesty and loyalty-- I hope.

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

A. I'd like to meet rock 'n' roll pioneer Buddy Holly, and Abraham Lincoln. I'd tell Buddy not to get on that plane on February 3, 1959. And I'd tell Lincoln not to go to Ford's Theatre on April l4, l865.

Q. What is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?

A. Watching old movies and talking with friends.
