Frequently Asked Questions

What is your favorite book?

That’s a loaded question.  To be precise I have multiple favorites, not just one favorite. My favorites include, but are not limited to: Zadie Smith’s White Teeth, Sylvia Plath’s the Bell Jar, Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale, Dalton Trumbo’s Johnny Got His Gun, JD Salinger’s Catcher in the Rye, Chuck Palahniuk’s Fight Club…So on and so forth.

Who’s your favorite author?

Sylvia Plath.

Why do you like Sylvia Plath so much?

I connected with her writing at a young age (about 13) through the Bell Jar.  Like most young females, I’ve always identified well with Esther Greenwood.  That was only the beginning–I fell deeply in love with Plath’s poetry.  And we’ve been in love ever since!

What do you read?

Everything and anything. I read the classics. I read the New York Times bestsellers. I read trashy, poorly written novels. As an individual I try not to judge; therefore, I will not judge you for what you read. Nothing bothers me more than people who act superior to the latest popular novels…or in fact any novel. I cannot stand to hear “Oh I never got into the whole Harry Potter thing. It’s so childish,” or “God, Fifty Shades was so poorly written.” I like to keep an open mind.

Do you want to write a book?

Don’t we all?

What do you plan to do with your life?

Well, I currently work full time, and my most immediate plans involve not living in a box. Cardboard is horrible material for a permanent residence, and I find the resale value diminishes the moment you move in. For the rest of my life, I plan to find happiness freely and frequently. I plan to be a lifelong learner. Maybe I’ll build a super sweet library for all of my books. Maybe I’ll write the next bestseller. But let’s not put too much pressure.
