Me, the interview

Scrabblequeen had this on her blog, and it intrigued me, so I asked her if I could play along. Here are the results of her virtual interview of moi:

SQ: I see that you have your degree in Library Science, what do you like most about your work? What kind of library do you work in?

Me: What I love most about my work are the occasions when I find something that a patron thinks would have been impossible to locate. I've been called an angel, a magician, and a goddess, and I've even been offered a tip, which we civil servants (I work in a public library) are not allowed to accept.

SQ: I love your nature photography. How is the Cafe Press business doing?

Me: Thank you! I enjoy it very much. Sadly, my Cafe Press business is not doing well. I blame it on the sheer volume of stuff available on Cafe Press and other online shops.

SQ:You're a mystery fan. What sub-genre is your favorite? Or perhaps, you'd rather share your favorite author with us?

Me: Is it that obvious? I guess I'd have to say my favourite sub-genre is the cozy. Incidentally, I'm moderating a panel about cozies at Left Coast Crime in March.

SQ: You're a Canadian by birth, so what brought to the U.S. and when?

Me: Actually, I was born in India and grew up in Canada. I moved to the US in 1998 when I was offered a position at the Boston Public Library.

SQ: I ask all my interviewees this one; if you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go and with whom?

Me: The second half of the question is easy, I'd go with my best friend, who happens to be my husband. We have a long list of places that we want to go. I guess New Zealand and Tahiti are at the top.

Thanks, Scrabblequeen, I really enjoyed that.
For those of you who might want to be interviewed, here are the directions:

1. Leave me a comment saying, “Interview me.”
2. I will respond by emailing you five questions. (I get to pick the questions).
3. You will update your blog with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.


  1. Wonderful. I now feel I "know" you a little better. I'll try to remember to check out the panel in March, as cozies are my favorite type of mystery as well.

  2. I didn't know you were born in India! Just another interesting fact about my friend!

  3. I'd be glad to be interviewed.

    And you will want to check out the blog entry I just did....


Thank you so much for dropping by and reading my blog. I do read all comments, and try to respond.
