What’s the last book you read and what did you think?
Under and Alone. It is an incredible story about ATF Undercover Agent William Queen and how he brought down the notorious biker gang, the Mongols. I love true stories about good versus evil!
What is your proudest accomplishment?
Awareness of what’s truly important in life – friendship. I took this for granted in the early days and didn’t understand what a true friend meant until I needed help and it ended up saving my life.
If you could go back in time, what year would you travel to and why?
1983 when "Star Wars – Return of the Jedi" came out. I was only 12 but felt like I was on top of the world with a light saber.
If you had a warning label, what would yours say?
This forehead shines bright in the sun.
