My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

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’s your greatest flaw?

A. Like most people in the arts, I talk too much and I'm way too fascinated with myself!

Q. What do you regret most?

A. People often say that they most regret the things they didn't do, not the things they did, and I think that's true for me as well. And that's all you'll get out of me!:-)

Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. Singer/dancer in movies at MGM in the l940s, or working for President Obama as a speech writer (not that he needs one!), now.

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. Well, I think that there's a piece of me in every character out of history that I write about. Actually, it's the opposite, since they came first! I certainly don't claim to resemble anyone "great". The people I most admire out of history, though, for their talents and accomplishments, or virtues-- or both-- include: Abraham Lincoln, Fred Astaire, Martin Luther King, Jr., Judy Garland, Buddy Holly, Frank Sinatra, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and many others.
