I enjoy a nice tenderloin or rack of lamb, especially if I’m in the company of my wife and three daughters.
What are some of your favorite ways to relax?
I find swimming (well, mostly just floating) in salt water very relaxing. And at home, sitting down with a good book.
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
I love the Boston area, where I live now, except for the winter months. I’m now retired, and when my wife finally retires too, I’d like to be in a seaside condo in a warm clime for the winter months, but one that still has many of the cultural features of Boston, especially good theater, sports, music, movies, and lots of good restaurants.
If you could only read books by one author, who would it be? *I know, this is an inconceivable thought, lol.
I could keep busy for some time reading Dickens. There are still a few I haven’t read, and it’s been so many years since I read the others I could enjoyably read them again.
Share with us a few of your dreams. Also whether they have been fulfilled or are still a work in progress.
Now that I’m retired from science and my main activity is writing books, I have the dream that some day one of my books will make it to the best-seller list. And I’ll appear on the Daily Show and discuss it with Jon Stewart.
What are some of your guilty pleasures?
I try hard not to feel guilty about my pleasures.
If you could leave the world with one piece of advice, what would it be?
