Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Treat people right and serve them.

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

Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?

A. I love Elton John {Levon}, I think Lady Gaga Is very talented {Bad Romance}, I love classical {Lizst}, I've seen AFI live {Sing the Sorrow, the album. ps I didn't get squished at that concert}, Michael Jackson {EVERYTHING. I'm so sad he's gone.}

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. My daughters . . . especially Kyra, who is typing this right now. They make me laugh.
