Question #1: Where and when do you read?
I do most of my reading on the subway. A good book can make a 40-minute commute much more enjoyable!
Question #2: Which book have you most given as a present?
Definitely The End of the Beginning by Avi. The whimsical wisdom in this book really spoke to me when I was younger (in fact, I wrote one of my college admissions essays about it!), so I’m always eager to pass a copy to someone else!

Question #3: What do you remember about your first book fair?
Mostly, I was thrilled to be meeting face-to-face with so many people that I’d been corresponding with over email for a long time!
Question #4: Tell us the resolutions you have made for this year.
This year, I’ve been trying to eat healthier. Though I had to give myself a break to enjoy some delicious pasta and gelato in Bologna
Question #5: Tell us about a bad habit, an obsession or a particular attitude you have picked up since starting to work at Scholastic
This one relates back to Question #4! There are always lots of sweets around our office, thanks to my generous co-workers, and we’re also located just across the street from a delicious cupcake shop. So I often find myself eating too many sweets at work!
