My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Be kind.

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

A. This has never been my occupation in real life, but my fantasy job (when not writing) is to be a librarian. I would so love to get lost in the stacks and stacks of books. And I love the library smell!

Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

A. Jane Eyre

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

A. Some kind of dessert. Molten chocolate cake topped with vanilla ice cream perhaps. My life span would be brief, but it would make somebody VERY happy.

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. I’d say my fear of conflict. It’s gotten me into more terrible situations than I’d care to count. I’m trying to work on it.
