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 eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. Pizza, without a doubt.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. Sitting down with a cup of coffee at sunrise every morning to write exactly what I want to write and to be worried about nothing in that moment except how to make the words sing. Life is too complicated to let this happen very often, but sometimes it all comes together and my god is it magic and does it ever make me happy.

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.

A. Compassion, honesty, humor.
