My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Don't be too embarrassing.

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

A. At this moment, I feel a little hungry. So: the Cafe Schwarzenberg. I'll have the kaiserschmarrn.

Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?

A. "Jolene" - Dolly Parton, "Don't Forget Me" - Harry Nilsson, "Glad and Sorry" - The Faces, "1952 Vincent Black Lightning" - Richard Thompson, "The Beast in Me" - Nick Lowe,

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. I'm not sure if we're talking fictional or real here, but I'll go for an obvious one: Abraham Lincoln. I'd say, "Mr. President, it's an honor." Then, I'd invite him over for cake, or pie, or whatever we had, whatever he wanted. The larder is open to the 16th president.

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. Some very unpleasant death - to drown, to suffocate, to be slowly eaten, you get the idea. Grim. Let's move on.
