Have you ever faked reading a book?

  • The Stranger by Albert Camus
  • The Educated Imagination by Northrop Frye
  • A Room of One's Own by Virginia Wolf

Best library memory: Sitting among the shelves in the Wichita Public Library and smelling that old book smell.

First book you remember reading on your own?  The first book I ever read is called I Can Do It Myself (a Bert and Ernie Sesame Street book)

If you could have any famous person narrates any book, who would it be, which book, & why?  Benedict Cumberbatch can read anything, and I'll be happy. I love his voice and accent!

What do you find most interesting/rewarding about working at Talking Books?  As someone who has trouble with my eyes sometimes, I know a little about the challenges of reading the traditional way and seeing a page. I love that we give people the opportunity to read through a different medium and that I get to be a part of that!

Farthest you’ve ever been from Kansas?  London, UK

What is your favorite line from a book?  "Now the trouble with trying to make yourself stupider than you actually are is that you very often succeed." -The Magician's Nephew by CS Lewis
