What is your favorite thing about being an author? I love hearing from readers who tell me how my work has inspired and encouraged them on their path of sobriety and good health. Just a few of those types of letters make all the hard work worthwhile.Are you "six degrees of separation" away from anyone famous? When I was working as a personal chef, one of my clients was John Guare, the playwright of ”Six Degrees of Separation.” Does that count? Favorite dessert? I adore a really good cannoli.What food could you not live without? PizzaHow do you cheer yourself up when you're feeling down? Whenever I’m feeling like I need rejuvenation, I go out in my backyard and enjoy all of nature’s gifts. I’m an avid gardener and backyard birder and have lots of feeders set up and flowers growing that attract a variety of birds and critters who never fail to put a smile back on my face.
