My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. A group of girlfriends, a bottle or three of wine, and chocolate can make just about anything easier to bear.

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. I just love the wording of this question. It's like, "We know there are MANY flaws -- probably too many to count -- but if you could only choose one (and it must be so hard to narrow it down), think of your greatest flaw, the one that makes people run away from you screaming. Um, I get distracted easily? Think impure thoughts about certain movie stars? Scarf down chocolate in front of my children and lie to them, telling them I'm eating fruit?

Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. Baked sweet potatoes dipped in chocolate. I'd eat the insides on days when I was feeling virtuous, and lick off the chocolate on my decadent days.

Q. What is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?

A. Quality control at the Godiva-making facility.

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. People who eat a meal without drinking a beverage. I know, I know; it's bizarre.
