Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Thanks to Tony Horton from P90X, I find myself saying "Do your best and forget the rest," a lot.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. I think happiness is a state of mind versus circumstances since it's possible to be happy or have joy no matter what's happening around us. Some things may weigh heavier on us than others, but with a loving family, faithful friends, and a merciful God, we can make it!

Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?

A. I don't want to be anyone else other than myself. If I could be a thing, maybe I would be a tree.

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

A. Teaching college classes

Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?

A. Playing basketball. It is my favorite sport, besides volleyball, and I cannot play at all.
