I knew I wanted to be a writer when...
I wanted to write everyday.

Writing about my own life was...
Fun.

Being a mother has made me...
Look more carefully at my behavior. There is nothing I want to get right more than being a parent.

Advice for someone looking for love...
Be open and get involved. If a friend asks you to take a gardening class with her- take it, you never know who will be next to you potting a plant. Also, stay positive- there is nothing more attractive than a woman who is tickled pink by what she has rather than bummed about what she doesn't have.

Favorite Author...
Jamie Oliver. I love cooking out of his books!

Favorite Actor...
I am loving Amy Ryan. She is so good in Win Win- she should get an Oscar.

Favorite Comedian...
Louis C.K. My husband took me to see him at Caroline's as a surprise. We laughed like eight-year-olds.

Favorite Summer getaway...
My parents' house in Maine.

Favorite Summer cocktail...
Margarita

My personal style is...
Casual. If I don't feel right in an outfit, I will go home to change. I hate clothes that ruin my mojo.
