My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

Q. What 3 personal qualities are most important to you?
A. Trustworthiness, respect for other people -- and the ability to make people laugh.
Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?
Q. What’s your greatest fear?
A. Something bad happening to one of my children.
Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?
A. "Just" There's a great website called wordcloud. You enter text into it and it creates a picture of all your most used words, with the words you used most being the biggest. I pasted all of the first draft of 'Belly Up' into it and discovered I'd used the word "Just" more than my own protagonist's name. So I went back through the book and cut out hundreds of "justs."
