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.
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.
A. Besides various stints at restaurants and shops, I have also been an au pair for a French family, an artist model, the Editorial Assistant for "Horizon" magazine, a cartoon voice (as the baddie's sidekick in a pilot episode that never saw the light of day), a translator, and a foreign language teacher, French to Americans and English to Spaniards.
