My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Here's what I put in my high school yearbook, and I do believe it's what I'd still put today: Walk slowly; all you can ever come to is yourself.

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. That would be Doing A Headstand. Yep, I've been scared of that particular feat all my life, have never done one, and I've decided to come clean. So there you have it.

Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. Chinese dumplings, either pan-fried, boiled, or steamed.

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

A. Honeys, I'm stuck with being me, and I wouldn't change that.

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

A. Lying on the couch while my children bake me delicacies, clean the house, and write small songs of praise in my honor.
