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. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. Alexander Fleming.  I'm fascinated with scientific discoveries.  They're the most incredible mix of creativity and discipline and genius and dumb luck. 

I guess I'd ask him what kind of sandwich he left out.  I'd like to think we owe the discovery of penicillin to a good old PB&J, but he was Scottish so I think it was more likely some gnarly cheese and marmite thing.  Oh well.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. I'm sitting on the couch with my laptop, my husband is beside me watching hockey, and my kids are sleeping peacefully in their beds.  Add a pound of dark chocolate and that's heaven.

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. Primate-esque arm length. My knuckles occasionally drag on the ground.

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.
