Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. "Have we learned nothing?"

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. Well, that's a cheery question. When we get past the basics -- fearing for my wife and my daughter's safety and worrying about their health and happiness -- leaving behind a mediocre body of work when I die.

Q. What is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?

A. I like to cook.

Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. Pecorino cheese

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. I am always happiest when I am with my wife and my daughter.

And when we are together in -- Warning, Mid-Life Novelist Cliche Dead Ahead -- Italy, I am especially content. Give me my family, a bicycle, and a bottle of wine and I am one happy fellow.
