My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Focus on your goal, and just keep plodding towards it with blinders on.

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. I've always worn my hair pulled back in a bun or ponytail, and despite not having danced for over 20 years now, it's a habit I cannot break.

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

A. Banana Cream Pie! My mother still makes it for me every time I come home (occasionally she'll make two -- one for the family and one just for me!)

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. That someone would sneak up on me while I'm sleeping and shave off one of my eyebrows.

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. That I have been able to make a living in the arts my whole life, and combine it with raising children (Sasha, 17 and Ben, 14) who I not only love, but I really like.
