1. What is the first book you remember reading by yourself as a child?
Shel Silverstein’s Where the Sidewalk Ends.
2. What are you reading right now?
I’m finishing up Jennifer Estep’s Widow’s Web.
3. How does your garden grow?
Very merrily, with peas and buttercups galore. Also with the occasional person-sized pitcher plant (testy, be careful) and a sky-high garden maze, at the center of which you can find a fairy – if she’s in the mood.
4. What is the last thing you Googled?
Honestly? Myself. It’s release week and I’m reading all the reviews. But normally my Google habits are rather disturbing. For example, I did a lot of research on strangulation methods for my current project. I keep expecting the men in black to show up at my door to discuss this – but so far, coast is clear.
5. What makes you cringe?
High-pitched screeching sounds. The flu. And papercuts.
