My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Life owes me nothing, no matter how hard I work. Whatever good comes to me in the end is simply a gift and a blessing.

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

A. It well might be Abraham Lincoln. And I'd advise him to skip the play at Ford's Theatre.

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. I fear physical pain. Under threat of torture, I'd fold like a card castle.

Q. What do you regret most?

A. I never learned to play a musical instrument. I'd love to be able to sit down and jam with a bunch of other musicians. What a kick that would be!

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. The inability to say no when asked for a favor.
