A. Walking my little brother's golden retriever
Q. What is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?

Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?
A. Cadbury Mini Eggs. (VERY IMPORTANT: I'm not talking about the larger eggs, sometimes called Cadbury Maxi Eggs, with the gross fake yolk and too-sweet-cream egg white.) Why are these available only at Easter time? I have to stock up every spring with enough tiny chocolate eggs to last me the whole year, and then I end up eating that year's supply in three days. It's insane.

James Joyce, Jorge Luis Borges, Jon Scieszka, David Foster Wallace, Judith Viorst, Arnold Lobel, Agatha Christie, Raymond Chandler, Tomi Ungerer, James Marshall, Ellen Raskin, Nicholas Mosley, Ernest Hemingway, Flann O'Brien, Roald Dahl, Dr. Seuss, Edward Lear, Mother Goose, Chris Ware, and on and on and on
