Q: Will there be more Mother-Daughter Book Club books?
A: The seventh and final book in the series is underway! Publication date will be announced shortly.
Q: Have you always wanted to be a writer?
A: Yes. I fell under the spell of the written word early, when my father read aloud to my sisters and me every night before bed. Ever since I was old enough to understand that books didn’t just appear on library and bookstore shelves, but that real live people wrote them, I’ve thought, “That’s the job for me.”
Q: If you weren’t a writer, what would you be?
A: A librarian or bookseller, most likely. I can’t imagine a life that didn’t have something to do with books. I briefly considered being an Egyptologist—I grew up in New England, and Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts has a mummy exhibit that fascinated me when I was young, plus I loved Zilpha Keatley Snyder’s book The Egypt Game. I was also fascinated with all the spy shows on TV at that time—Mission: Impossible, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., I Spy, and my favorites, The Avengers and Get Smart. And of course there were all the James Bond movies to boot. Espionage seemed so glamorous to me back then. Alas, adolescent me wasn’t very glamorous (and I have the pictures to prove it), so becoming a spy was quickly crossed off the list.
