Q. Can you tell us three things about yourself that we probably don’t already know?
- I hate odd numbers.
- I got my name Buffy from the TV show Family Affair (American sitcom that ran from 1966 to 1971). There was a little girl on the show named Buffy and she had a sister Cissy and a twin brother Jody. I always wanted to live in that fancy New York apartment with Uncle Bill and Mr. French.
- I love to run.
Q.What five gadgets or items would you hate to be without?
- Smartphone, iPad, laptop, microwave, eye glasses.
- Is there one piece of writing (or life?) advice that has stuck with you, or that you would like to share?
- Failures are the building blocks of success. My failures have made me stronger and more determined to succeed. They’ve forced me to admit my shortcomings and figure out how to overcome them. And they’ve taught me that we have only truly failed when we allow the Monster of Defeat to overpower us and hold us down.
We don’t always understand the defining moments of our lives as they are happening. But when we look back, we can clearly see that along with the hits and home runs there are some strikes and strikeouts and that together they make the game. In the end, the winner is one who learns to deal with both.
