From the Author
Q: Why did you want to write a book about how to write best emails?
A: I love email. Email is a great equalizer! A) a person who communicates well will always have a job and b) small business owners who know how to write effective emails with personal appeal can outdo not-too-motivated employees from huge corporations.
Q: Who is the one person living or dead that you would like to have dinner with?
A: Ted Turner! He has been a pioneer and/or influencer in every field that's important to me: mass media, old movies, protecting the environment, world peace, and tooting how cool living in the South is. To me, Ted Turner is a visionary and the proverbial doer.
Q: Describe the perfect writing environment.
A: My office at my house in Greenville, SC. My two cats visiting and purring (=begging) that I read out loud what I am writing. No kidding - my cats enjoy listening to me reading out loud.
Q: If you could write your own epitaph, what would it say?
A: "She wrote the script to her life and she had fun with it, even if occasionally too many bad guys showed up or something else went wrong."
Q: Lastly, what book has had the most significant impact on your life?
A: "Seven Years in Tibet" by Heinrich Harrer. A few years after I read the book, Harrer toured Austria, where I grew up. I met him in person, and he encouraged me to visit Tibet. Luckily I did, in 1987, before the Chinese government suppressed Tibetans non-violent struggle for the liberation of Tibet, a second time. Because of this experience, I learned to follow my dreams.
