About my kids: 
I have three of them. A girl and fraternal twin boys. My daughter is an artistic, peace-loving older soul, who is self-motivated and solid in her direction. My twins are virtual opposites. One is sentimental, intuitive, a hugger, mechanically inclined and completely devoted to his mom :) The other is independent-minded, confident, athletically-inclined and will be a charmer with the ladies, so I am told.
Parenting is...: 
A never-ending mishmash of discovery, challenge, tears, triumph, surprise, shock, amazement, hysterical laughter, hysteria in general and a provider of the most precious of possessions: memories. As a single parent, I have also discovered parenting is about resilience, loyalties, bargaining, cooperation and learning how to be the father as well as the mother.
We know you don't have a lot, but when you do, what do you like to do in your spare time?: 
I move my body in my spare time. Running, cycling, hiking, weightlifting... love it all. When my kids are with their Dad, I catch up on everything I can't do when they are with me.
When are you at your yummiest?: 
When I am working out in the gym or at a party. I gain energy from being around others.
If someone wrote a biography about you, what would be the title?: 
A direct woman on an indirect path
What's currently in your purse?: 
Two tickets to paradise.
What superhero power would you like to have?: 
Hypnotic powers to command publishers to make any books I write international bestsellers.
If we gave you an elephant, where would you hide it?: 
If it was small and ceramic, I'd hide it in the garbage.
