Dana Gynther
Q. Is there a book you love to reread?

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.

Q. What is your birthdate?

A. 12/28

Q. What was/is your favorite job?

A. Writing! (Though I did have a lot of laughs when my best friends and I all worked at the same burger joint in High School).

Q. What is your favorite movie?

A. I am sucker for Biblical epics like "Ben-Hur" and classroom dramas (ie, "To Sir With Love."), but perhaps my favorite movie of all time is  "Cyrano de Bergerac" with Depardieu.  I love almost anything with the Marx Brothers, Humphrey Bogart, and James Stewart... and  I can't resist the charms of Indiana Jones.
