My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. So powerful is the light of unity that it can illuminate the whole earth

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. I guess that depends whether we're talking about in writing or in real life. In writing, my copy editor pointed out to me--very rightly--that I modify way too many verbs with "slightly" or "briefly." Then in real life, I just recently overheard my 2 year old talking to her baby doll and saying in a very patient voice, "Oh, babydoll, why did you do that?" And I thought, Goodness, I have no idea where she could have picked that up!

Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?

A. Forever? Or just as a temporary thing? I'd love to live a day in the life of a Jane Austen heroine--any of them, from Elizabeth Bennet to Catherine Morland, I'm not particular! But I'd need to go back to being myself at the end of the day--I'd miss my family too much!

Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?

A. Honestly, I would chose to be exactly where I am now--typing at my computer, listening to my husband and daughter playing in the living room, knowing I'll go in and join them in a minute. I'm not sure whether that means I'm incredibly lucky or just incredibly boring . . .

Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. Really, being a writer. It's my absolute dream job and I couldn't love it more.
