Notes from a YA Debutante
Ten Random Facts About Me:
1. I'm also a librarian, which means I've mastered the art of reading picture books sideways.
2. It also means that I'm in love with the Dewey Decimal System. Seriously. I can't help myself. All of the books in our house are shelved alphabetically by the author's last name. It's like a sickness. On the plus side, I can find any book I'm looking for in about two seconds.
3. I used to fence competitively. My weapons were foil and sabre. It wasn't until I got to my first competition that I discovered that almost all sabre fencers are REALLY BIG MEN.
4. I have Celiac Disease, so my body can't handle gluten. It's hard to find a restaurant that can feed me, but I can bake some delicious desserts with crazy-sounding ingredients.
5. I met my husband in our college dining hall.
6. When I was a kid in upstate New York, our next-door neighbors used to have their driveway and entire yard plowed whenever there was a big snowfall. The plow would mound all the snow into a long, enormous wall between our houses. It made an incredible snow fort for me and my brother.
7. I love 1980s music, even though I was too young to listen to it at the time. Put on the Bangles or the Go-Gos, and I'm happy.
8. When I got the call from my agent that Prisoner of Night and Fog had gone into an auction, I squealed with excitement when I hung up. My three-year-old daughter had no clue what was going on, but she could tell that it was good, and she jumped around the living room, cheering, "Party for Mommy!" Just thinking about it now makes me smile.
9. I rowed on my high school and college varsity crew teams. Every season I tried to switch between port and starboard sides so I wouldn't develop freakishly big muscles on only side of my body. I'm still not sure if it worked.
10. I'm so excited to be part of the 2014 Debutante Event! Thanks for having me, Lisa!
