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 be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?

A. I suppose anywhere that's warm and where there's a white beach that runs along a blue sea. In Minnesota in winter, that always sounds lovely.

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. The inability to say no when asked for a favor.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

A. Gus McCrae, the wonderfully flawed and philosophic former Texas Ranger in Larry McMurtry's fine epic Lonesome Dove.

Q. What do you regret most?

A. I never learned to play a musical instrument. I'd love to be able to sit down and jam with a bunch of other musicians. What a kick that would be!
