My favorite childhood book:

The Secret at Pheasant Cottage by Patricia St. John


The book I enjoyed most in elementary school:

The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling (adapted ?)


The book that inspired me most as a writer:

Annison’s Risk by Paul McCusker


The books I’ve read over and over:

The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis

The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart

Little Britches by Ralph Moody


A classic I’m embarrassed to say I’ve never read:

To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee


The books I consider to be grossly overrated:

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (especially Peeta)

Old Yeller by Fred Gipson, Steven Polson

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis


The books I wish I’d written:

Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rowels

Hinds Feet on High Places by Hannah Hurnard

When People Are Big and God is Small by Edward Welch


The novels people might be surprised to learn I love:

Anne of Green Gables series by Lucy Maud Montgomery

Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rowels


What I’d read if I were restricted to one genre for the rest of my life:

History (I would say poetry, but then I couldn’t read the gospels)


The last book that made me laugh…and the last one that made me cry:

Little Britches by Ralph Moody

Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery (I don’t cry a lot in books, but what Montgomery puts her characters through at the end of the first book is simply heart-wrentching. I won’t tell you what happens though. That would be a spoiler.)


My favorite movie versions of books

The Lord of the Rings-extended edition

The Giver (There are some zinger one-liners in there)

Anne of Green Gables (Not the other movies from that series though)


The things I’ve written that make me cringe…and the things I’ve written that make me proud

In My Quiet Hour (I don’t cringe exactly, but it’s not good.)

The Song of the Health Nut (It’s hilarious. I’ll probably post it on here eventually)
