Vikki Wakefield
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Only the mediocre are always at their best.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. I think perfect happiness should be within sight, but always just out of reach, otherwise what would we live for? Most days I'd settle for a balmy beach, a good book, a bottle of wine, and my kids playing in the surf (with life-jackets on so I don't have to watch them and I can read my book).

Q. What do you regret most?

A. I wish I'd taken more risks before I became aware of my mortality.

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. Losing the people I love.

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

A. Illustration.
