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 were your previous occupations?

A. Besides various stints at restaurants and shops, I have also been an au pair for a French family, an artist model, the Editorial Assistant for "Horizon" magazine, a cartoon voice (as the baddie's sidekick in a pilot episode that never saw the light of day), a translator, and a foreign language teacher, French to Americans and English to Spaniards.

Q. What is your favorite television show?

A. DVDs have made watching series a real pleasure... or an addiction? "Deadwood," "The Wire" and "The Sopranos" are all favorites. And my all-time fave girl-hero, "Buffy the Vampire Slayer."

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).
