Q. What was/is your favorite job?

A. This one! I love writing young adult novels.

Q. What is your favorite movie?

A. The Lord of the Rings (all three volumes), The Good The Bad & The Ugly, The Breakfast Club, The Dark Crystal, Young Guns, Friday... it's too hard to pick just one!

Q. Name of your favorite composer or music artist?

A. Radiohead.

Q. What were your previous occupations?

A. It's a blur of gray cubicles, meetings with the Bobs, and general corporate zombie-ness. Mostly I'm just glad I no longer have to do dumb work stuff like wear pantyhose or wake up early.
