If you could be any fictional character, whom would you choose?

Probably Maleficent, mostly because she is TALL (when played by Angelina Jolie!)


Would you rather read on an electronic device (iphone, Ipad, Kindle etc.) or a paperback book?

Definitely a paperback and I even do a fair amount of hardback books.


What is your favorite book?

Only one? You’re kidding, right? This year: The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown, All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr, and The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt. Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese is near and dear to my heart, no matter what year. However my all-time favorite is Mere Christianity by C. S. Lewis.


What is your favorite music?

Classical. All kinds, all the time!


What do you do for fun?

Running, reading, going to the movies and binge-watching Netflix-type TV series with my hubby.


Do you have a favorite verse(s)? If so, what is it?

Hebrews 12:5-6: “…God has said, ‘Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.’ So we say with confidence, ‘The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?’”


What do you love about what you do?

I work as a writing center tutor at Wake Tech Community College, and I love guiding students one-on-one through their own critical reading and writing process. I love seeing their “aha” moments!
