My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Be kind to yourself. (My mom says it to me all the time, possibly because she knows I need permission.)

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. My mom, of course! She's smart and sweet and makes everyone feel better about themselves. Also, the woman can destroy me in an arm wrestle.

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. Cleopatra. Once I held a snake at Gatorland and I also used to wear too much black eye-liner.

Q. What do you regret most?

A. That hotel time share presentation--THREE HOURS of my life that I will NEVER GET BACK.

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. According to me: inability to sleep like a normal human being i.e. when I'm tired. According to my husband: propensity to throw away important documents if they happen to look too much like junk mail.
