Pam Withers

What books are on your end table right now?
The Miracle Life of Edgar Mint by Brady Udall: A marvelous read, very quirky humor and rich writing, reminds me of Alexie Sherman but better.

Who’s your favourite author/illustrator of all time?
James Ramsey Ullman/Farley Mowat/Roald Dahl (You expect me to restrict my answer to one?!)

Where is the best place to curl up with a good book?
On the sofa in the den under a patchwork quilt. It’s a loooong sofa where I can stretch out.

What series did you read growing up?
Wizard of Oz — all 40 of them. (Honestly, there are that many.)

Do you have a guilty reading pleasure?
Nonfiction. (Seems like as a novelist, I should be reading more fiction, but I’ve always preferred nonfiction!)
