Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Get it right. I'm always hyper-aware that I'm helping readers make choices about their money--I spend my time checking and rechecking, to be sure that what I'm saying is right.

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

A. My husband's spaghetti and coffee ice cream (but not together!)

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. I like to talk politics and public-policy stuff, sometimes noisily.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?

A. None. I hate 'em all.

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

A. Thrilled to meet you, Mr. Shakespeare, I'm a fan. Could you get me two tickets to Love's Labor's Lost tomorrow night?
