Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Create as much as possible, love deeply, and enjoy every moment.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

A. I've always been partial to the Norse gods, because they are divine, but flawed. I like the duality that is there. But, if we are talking about in a book, I'll take the tree in the Giving Tree. A selfless hero to look up to.

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. Thinking about myself before others. It's hard not to do, but I'm working on it.

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. Creativity. Thinking outside the box. Drawing outside the lines.

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. At some point, someone figured out that sun would come up every day, even without all the dancing and singing. It would have to be that guy.
