What books are on your end table right now?
I’m reading A World Elsewhere by Wayne Johnston as my “adult” book. With my daughter I’m reading Lee Edward Fodi’s Kendra Kandlestar and the Box of Whispers, and I’m pre-reading Morning Girl, by Michael Dorris, as I think I’ll read it aloud to my grade 3/4 class soon. I’m looking forward to digging into the Red Cedar and Reading Link Challenge books next.

Which is best: hardcover, softcover, or e-book?
Softcover. It isn’t too heavy to read in bed or in the bath, it can fit in my purse, and it never runs out of battery power.

If you could have dinner with three writers or illustrators, whom would you choose?
Sharon Creech, Barbara Kingsolver and Kevin Henkes.

What series did you read growing up?
Nancy Drew, The Bobbsey Twins, Encyclopedia Brown, James Bond (in high school).

Are you more likely to be caught reading a zombie novel or a sentimental romance?
Probably a sentimental romance, but more likely a good action/spy novel like a Lee Child.
