In one word, how would you like your readers to describe your blog?
Which is your most favorite among your blog posts? Why?
Me: Harbinger. It’s about a young woman’s grief over the death of her grandmother, and can be viewed in several ways. I think that it encourages discussion on the grieving process. And I like Daisy, the main character!
What/Who inspires most of your blog posts?
Me: The people I come into contact with, and their responses to situations they’re involved in.
What do you aspire to accomplish this year?
Me: Send out more love.
What do you aspire to learn this year?
Me: To be more tolerant.
What is your most favorite book? Why?
Me: The Handmaidens Tale, by Margaret Attwood, and anything else written by her, because her plots are immaculate, her writing style is beautiful and her talent for metaphor is unbeatable. To Kill a Mocking Bird has to get a mention here too, because I think that everybody should read it.
What is your most favorite quote?
Me: I have two, “You must be the change you want to see in the world”(Gandhi)
and “To err is human; to forgive divine.”
What is the most courageous thing you’ve ever done?
Me: Leaving somebody I love to fend for herself, because I thought it may save her.
If you can be a superhero, what is your superpower?
Me: To turn hate into love, and greed into compassion.
Who is your greatest female role model?
Me: My mother. Always. I aspire to be like my mother.
