Green Eggs and Ham. I was five years old and it was the first day of school and the teacher offered to read a story and I piped up and said “I can read that one” and I did. And I ended up in the principal’s office for being fresh on my very first day of school. If I’m being honest I don’t actually remember reading the book—what I remember is being sent to the principal’s office for being clever. Which was something I made sure to do very little of after that point.

Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein
How does your garden grow?
Very, very poorly. I can’t garden to save my life. But the virtual roses that bloom on my desktop that my hubby set up as a screen saver? They’re beautiful. Probably because I can’t somehow kill them.
What is the last thing you Googled?
The Pennsylvania Department of Motor Vehicles for where to go to renew my driver’s license.
What makes you cringe?
Awkward situations in books I love. If I love a book and its characters I end up with transferred embarrassment for them anytime they’re in an awkward situation. My hubby laughs because I even make sympathetic facial expressions and cringe for them like it’s actually me suffering. I even cringe for characters as I write them and I’m the one doing the torturing.
