What’s the first book you remember reading?
Are You My Mother by P.D. Eastman was the first children’s book I ever read by myself. But the first book I remember reading as a child for the pure love of reading was The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank.
What’s the most recent book you have read or what are you reading right now?
I’ve been reading a lot of non-fiction books lately, but the book I’m reading now is The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood.
Why did you choose that book?
I’m reading The Handmaid’s Tale because it’s the May/June selection for Emma Watson’s Our Shared Shelf book club on Goodreads. I haven’t read all of their selections, but I have read many.
If you could meet one book character or one author, who would you like it to be and why?
Just one? I have two authors vying for the spot: J.D. Robb (aka Nora Roberts) and J.K. Rowling. I wonder if I can get them to do a wrestling match, and the winner will be the author I meet. And maybe treat to a drink of her choice after the grueling match. I learned to write romantic-suspense by reading J.D. Robb, and I found my imagination by reading J.K. Rowling.
You can only choose five books for your bookshelf. What are they?
1. Number the Stars by Lois Lowry
2. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
3. Naked in Death by J.D. Robb
4. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling
5. Wizards at War by Diane Duane

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.
