What’s the most recent book you have read or what are you reading right now?
I just finished The Bane Chronicles by Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan, and Maureen Johnson.
Why did you choose that book?
I love the character of Magnus Bane in Cassandra Clare’s other books, and I was curious to know more about his backstory.
You can only choose five books for your bookshelf. What are they?
Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier, The Orchard by Brigit Pegeen Kelly, Precious Bane by Mary Webb, Pretty Monsters: Stories by Kelly Link, and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling
I’m a writer whose imagination is constantly running wild. Real life always inspires me to jot down poems and stories. (website: www.marydeka.com)
Join the movement!
I want to promote reading. I know there are so many out there who have read a book and thought, this is something others need to know about. Reading encourages a lifelong passion for learning. #carolinareads is a movement that will give readers a chance to share what they are reading. There is a five question interview. I will share it on my website and give you a chance to not only promote your love of reading but also to promote yourself as you can include a website in your two sentence biography. Don’t live in the Carolinas? Well, do you know someone who does (hint: the person who created this form) you can still participate. Submit the form and I’ll let you know the date of your spotlight. Spread the word! Join the movement. Please email a picture if you would like it to be included.
