What was the last book you read?
I just finished the first volume/collection of Locke & Key, a (mature) comic book series by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez. I also recently finished Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher.
What was your favourite book growing up?
I was embarrassingly obsessed with a series called The Secret of the Unicorn Queen. My bedroom became a unicorn shrine. We’re talking unicorn posters, ceramic unicorns, unicorn lamps, unicorn curtains, and a purple unicorn bedspread. I even made up fan fiction in my head (though I didn’t know what fan fiction was at the time).
What literary character do you most relate to?
On my good days, I like to think I’m Elizabeth from The Paper Bag Princess. She’s tough, can outwit dragons, and is a feminist rock star (she saved the kingdom while wearing a paper bag AND dumped the prince when he turned out to be a bum). On my bad days, I’ve been compared to Eeyore.
“Mr. and Mrs. Mallard were looking for a place to live…” Name that book.
Make Way for Ducklings (Okay: I totally cheated and used Google.)
Describe your ideal day off.
Whale watching off the coast of Grand Manan followed by a Doctor Who marathon.
If you could attempt any profession but your own, what would it be?
A scriptwriter for Doctor Who or sweeping up the floors at Weta Workshop (the special effects company that worked on The Lord of the Rings films).
What would your pirate name be?
What is your favourite word?
Who do you want to be when you grow up?
What is a Woozle?
A woozle is a weasel that never was.
