My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Be kind.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

A. Jane Eyre

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. For one thing, becoming an author! I recently realized that my fantasies of having a novel with my name on the cover go back to age 8! But I also think getting through some incredibly difficult times in my life with my sense of humor still in tact might be my REAL greatest achievement.

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. I admire a great many living people, some of whom I’ve never met (every struggling single parent in the world doing her/his/hir best to raise children against the odds has my admiration, for example). But since I’m being asked to choose one, I’ll pick Malala Yousafzai.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?

A. Humbert Humbert
