1. One book that changed your life: "Changed your life" is such a heavy phrase. I cannot apply that to any book. Many books have inspired me.
2. One book you have read more than once: The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster
3. One book you would want on a desert island: The NeverEnding Story by Michael Ende
4. One book that made you laugh: Frozen Rodeo by Catherine Clark
5. One book that made you cry: Wizards at War by Diane Duane
6. One book you wish had been written: Had this been asked of me a few years ago, I would have responded, "Another Body of Evidence novel." Thankfully, more than three years after Brain Trust was released, Pocket Books finally gave Christopher Golden and Rick Hautala the go-ahead to write two more novels. Last Breath came out in October 2004; Throat Culture hit shelves in April 2005. I wouldn't mind seeing more BoE books come out, but I'm glad that those two helped wrap things up in case they marked the close of the series.
7. One book you wish had never been written: There are many books which I dislike, but they may be loved by others and were most likely valued by their authors, so I do not want to condemn anything to "never written" status. If the question posed was, "What famous, popular, or critically acclaimed novels do you dislike?" I would have many, many answers.
8. One book you are currently reading: Go Ask Malice by Robert Joseph Levy
9. One book you have been meaning to read: Specials by Scott Westerfeld

I've been telling and writing stories since I was born.
Before I was a teen myself, I knew that I wanted to write teen fiction.
I have always loved psychological thrillers and supernatural stories. Had I been born decades earlier, I would have wanted to write for The Twilight Zone.
