Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. If you're bored, you have no one to blame but yourself.

Q. What do you regret most?

A. The list would be endless. I guess I think I could have been a much, much better parent and husband.

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

A. My secret dream would be to play in a rock band, but I have absolutely no musical talent. I can't even hum on key.

Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?

A. Tough question - I'm always happy being with my wife and two grown sons, but I aalso love being out on the road in my car, driving somewhere to interview someone about whatever is the subject of my current book project.

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. I know it sounds pretty obsessive, but I dread every having a moment in my life when I can't think of anything to do. I don't want to become an old man who has lost interest in everything.
