Favorite Quote…

“Never underestimate that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can  change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”  Margaret Mead.  Another great one of hers: ‘It is utterly false and cruelly arbitrary to put all the play and learning into childhood, all the work into middle age and all the regrets into old age.’

Biggest Dream…

writing a great novel like The Help and selling the movie rights.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

pessimists.
