My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Life owes me nothing, no matter how hard I work. Whatever good comes to me in the end is simply a gift and a blessing.

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

A. The ability to dance like Fred Astaire or Gene Kelly.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. Sitting down with a cup of coffee at sunrise every morning to write exactly what I want to write and to be worried about nothing in that moment except how to make the words sing. Life is too complicated to let this happen very often, but sometimes it all comes together and my god is it magic and does it ever make me happy.

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. Raising a family.

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. I fear physical pain. Under threat of torture, I'd fold like a card castle.
