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. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?

A. I would love, love, love to be able to sing really well. I mean, I can carry a tune and I do a pretty mean Wheels on the Bus with my little girl. But I would love to have a really Broadway-star quality voice. Sadly, not to be--I guess I'll just have to write a book about a heroine with a fabulous singing voice someday!

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. Perfect happiness is: Listening to our new baby's tiny hummingbird heart beating. Hearing my daughter sing the alphabet song. Lying in bed next to my husband. (Although ideally not while he's snoring). When the characters in the book I'm writing really start talking to me and completely surprise me with what they have to say.

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. What’s your greatest fear?

A. Snakes! Ever since watching Raiders of the Lost Ark! That awful moment when the snake falls on Marion's neck gives me nightmares every time.
