Q. Is there a book you love to reread?

A. As a parent, I have reread many of my favorite children's books (that I'd read over and over again as a child), and still really enjoy some of them now: "The Chronicles of Narnia" (except for "The Final Battle"),    "James and the Giant Peach" and "The Patchwork Girl of Oz," for example.  Have also loved discovering Harry Potter with my kids  and have read those more than once.

Q. Name of your favorite composer or music artist?

A. This is not one person, but an eclectic, accumulated jumble. I've loved the Beatles for as long as I can remember. Since I was a pre-teen Neil Young and Leonard Cohen. Since college, the Velvet Underground, REM, Patti Smith and Club Wig... Post-college, more European and world music.

Q. Where did you go to high school and/or college?

A. Auburn High School (Auburn, Alabama). I got my BA (Political Science) and MA (French) at the University of Alabama, but also spent a year at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.

Q. What was/is your favorite job?

A. Writing! (Though I did have a lot of laughs when my best friends and I all worked at the same burger joint in High School).
