What are you currently reading or what is your favorite book?

The middle grade book I just finished is Kate DiCamillo’s wonderful novel, “Louisiana”, about a young girl on a journey filled with interesting twists and surprising events. It is both strong in characterization and plot. Best of all, it comes out mid-November, in time for Christmas! Also, I am at the end of Scott Westerfeld’s new dystopian book, Imposters, a thoughtful tale that keeps me up at night turning pages! It is in the store now and I’m excited there will be more coming in this series.

What is your favorite part about working at Page & Palette?

This question creates a smile in my heart as I love to connect people to possible books they might like. Super special moments happen when a particular book is selected from a certain shelf and placed questioningly into the receiver’s hand. When eyes light up as if to say, ‘yes, this is the one’, it is most satisfying.
What do you like to do in your free time?

Teaching theatre to young adults is a lifelong passion. Currently, I’m on the board of directors at Theatre 98, where I coach acting and write skits. Our next show, Slurping Stone Soup, based on the classic children’s story, will be presented November 13th.
