7 Random Questions with Jean Reagan
1-What’s the last book you bought?
And Then It's Spring by Julie Fogliano, illustrated by Erin E. Stead. I bought it for my daughter's 25th birthday 'cause I always give her a picture book in addition to something more "age appropriate!"
2-If you had to dedicate your book to a thing (and not a person), what would that thing be?
A canoe. Each summer I serve as a wilderness volunteer ranger in Grand Teton National Park and I patrol by hiking and by canoeing.
3-What’s an interesting tidbit readers might not know about you or your books?
There's a photo on my website of Katherine Paterson reading to my sister and me when I was about three (over 50 years ago!).
4-If you could have any career, what would it be? (And it can’t be “author”.)
A full-time, year-round national park ranger. How cool would that be?
5-Do you prefer the sunrise or the sunset?
In theory I prefer a sunrise, but in reality I enjoy sunsets much more frequently than I do sunrises.
6-What is the name of the protagonist in your work-in-progress?
Sparky. The story is about a dog who's afraid of the water.
7-What’s your favorite word?
Besides, "chocolate," my favorite word is "discombobulated." Sadly, I haven't yet figured out how to work it into a story.
