Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. J.K. Rowling whom, I think, personifies the perfect combination of talent, hard work, graciousness, and humanitarianism. What's not to look up to?

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. I don't think I'm ever more content than when I am absorbed in reading a great book. And, hey, if dappled sunlight is involved...even better!

Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?

A. Probably traipsing around Europe somewhere.

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. I'm not a huge fan of fire. Also, all my worst nightmares tend to revolve around a tsunami. Come to think of's starting to sound like elements in general may not be my thing (I mean, being buried alive would be no picnic either!)
