Her favorite childhood book: When I was the age of my intended audience, my favorite books were The BFGThe Wolves of Willoughby Chase, and Something Wicked This Way Comes.

If she could travel anywhere, where she’d like to go: A long time ago, I had the opportunity to stay in Prague for a few months, and I would love to go back there; it’s a beautiful, vulnerable, magical city.
