Monday Quiz About Me

Acting Balanced

1. Finish this sentence - The last book I read and enjoyed was....

Toys by James Patterson.

From the website:

James Bond and Jason Bourne have just been topped! A battle for the world is set into unstoppable motion and Hays Baker is the only one who can save it.

Hays Baker and his wife Lizbeth possess super-human strength, extraordinary intelligence, stunning looks, a sex life to die for, and two beautiful children. Of course they do—they're Elites, endowed at birth with the very best that the world can offer. The only problem in their perfect world: humans and their toys!

The one with the most toys—dies
The top operative for the Agency of Change, Hays has just won the fiercest battle of his career. He has been praised by the President, and is a national hero. But before he can savor his triumph, he receives an unbelievable shock that overturns everything he thought was true. Suddenly Hays is on the other side of the gun, forced to leave his perfect family and fight for his life.

Now a hunted fugitive, Hays is thrown into a life he never dreamed possible—fighting to save humans everywhere from extinction. He enlists all of his training to uncover the truth that will save millions of lives—maybe even his own. James Patterson's Toys is a thriller on a hyper plane—with a hero who rivals both James Bond and Jason Bourne.

2. Do you have special Victoria Day (Canadian) or Memorial Day (US) traditions? If you don't live in Canada or the US, what is the next holiday that you are celebrating where you are?

Not especially - though this is usually the signal that our annual pilgrimage to Canada is just around the corner.

3. If you could invent something to make your life simpler, what would it be?

 Each journal I write for has a slightly different format so  I would invent a program that automatically formats you manuscripts for whatever journal you are writing for. 

4. What is your favorite recent blog post?

I wrote this piece of advice for graduates that I thought was interesting.

Now my question for you...

5. What makes your heart go a flutter?

For me it is memories of my sister.  She passed away over a decade ago now and every now and then something will remind me of her and bring back a strong memory.  It is usually a bittersweet moment.
