My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Only connect.

Q. What do you regret most?

A. Hurting other people's feelings. I know that sounds weird, but there are a few (OK, maybe several) things I've done or said in my life that were just plain mean. Those memories pain me more than any other regrets I can think of.

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

A. Playing the guitar. I tried to learn while on our voyage, but I was dismal.

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. Teaching sixth graders in New Orleans with Teach For America.

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. Not having lived life to its fullest. (That, and my husband falling overboard while taking a leak.)
