Instead of a biographical paragraph or two, I thought I'd borrow the questions that James Lipton from "Inside the Actors' Studio" poses at the end of each interview. They're a fun way to share a little bit about myself so here goes:

1. What is your favorite word?

Beauty. And I mean the kind of beauty that comes from inside and from God.

2. What is your least favorite word?

Any derogatory racial slurs.

3. What turns you on?

Great sense of humor.

4. What turns you off?
Ungraciousness, plain meanness.

5. What sound or noise do you love?

Sound - The Beatles. Birds chirping. Noise - children playing.

6. What sound or noise do you hate?

7. What is your favorite curse word?

Ass Cannon

8. What

I think people are their own mysteries, and I sometimes think about a girl I vaguely knew in elementary and part of high school. She was a little older. She always wore a friendly smile, and she seemed to always be alone. I wonder what happened to her. I'd like to turn her story into a book.(less)

Author Study - Diane Chamberlain

I recently read three novels by Diane Chamberlain. Her books are a recently-discovered treasure, and I look forward to reading so much more from this prolific author.

I wrote an author study based on the three books that I've read, and literary website bookscover2cover published it. Here is the link:

I hope you enjoy.

Cheers,
