My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Love well. Serve well. Share well.

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

A. Musical literacy

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

A. Alfred Nobel.

When that guy was trying to invent dynamite, his factory blew up, his brother died, his dad had a stroke, the city of Stockholm kicked him out, ships blew up, the San Francisco docks exploded, and yet he kept going. Dynamite was used to blow up thousands more people. And then Alfred got old and -- possibly in a crisis of conscience -- established the Nobel prizes. 

I'd just like to take him by the ears and say, "what the h-e-double-hockey-sticks were you thinking? And what kind of person are you, anyway?"

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. Earthquakes. I have a serious fear of seismic activity.

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. Margaret Atwood. She single-handedly changed the face of a nation's literature. And have you ever heard her speak? Everything that comes out of her mouth is brilliant. Wait... I changed my mind. I think I hate her. She's really skewing the bell curve for the rest of us.
