If you could travel in a Time Machine would you go back to the past or into the future?
I’d go back to the past.  I’d love to visit the 1920s for the fun, innovation, and energetic belief that all things are possible.  A favorite saying at the time was, “What will they think of next?”  It was a tremendously exciting to be alive.
If you could meet one person who has died who would you choose?
I would choose to meet George Washington.  I’d like to thank him for leading the American Revolutionary Army to victory and creating American Democracy.
Tell us your most rewarding experience since being published.

Is there a song you could list as the theme song for your book or any of your characters?
Cole Porter’s Lets Fall in Love.
If you could be one of the Greek Gods, which would it be and why?

What is your favorite Quote?
“If you’re going through hell, keep going.”  Winston Churchill
What’s the best advice anyone has ever given you?
