My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. “You pile up enough tomorrows, and you’ll find you've collected nothing but a lot of empty yesterdays. I don't know about you, but I'd like to make today worth remembering.” (Prof. Harold Hill in Meredith Willson's THE MUSIC MAN).

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. If people who know me say I'm a kind and honest person and have integrity, that I would consider a great achievement.

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

A. I'd still like to be myself, but able to travel in time to wherever I wanted to be, so I could witness things and meet famous people out of history. But I guess my books allow me do that!

Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. Singer/dancer in movies at MGM in the l940s, or working for President Obama as a speech writer (not that he needs one!), now.

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. Without a doubt, my father, a World War II veteran who received the Bronze Star for heroism in combat and will be 90 in a few days-- and also President Obama.
