Q. What book have you read in the last six months that you would recommend to people who enjoy YOUR work?
Lisa: Right now, I'm very into The Killers. A little bit retro but totally hip and modern. Both albums I have, Hot Fuzz and Sam's Town, are fabulous.
Lisa: Right now I'm reading Kate Atkinson's Case Histories. Honestly, she's brilliant. It's really the best book I've read in so long.
Lisa: I can't ever remember a time when I didn't think of myself as a writer. I'm not sure what inspired me early on, other than I've always been a voracious reader. Along the way I've had some very supportive teachers who encouraged me. But I've never wanted to be or do anything else. So I feel very, very blessed to make my living this way.
Lisa: My last two book tours I conducted with my daughter Ocean. On the first tour, she was four months old. On the second, she was just over a year. During both tours I was nursing her. Touring with your nursing baby is not for the feint-hearted, trust me. I always say that my daughter has been breast-fed in over 100 bookstore parking lots and back rooms across the country -- this is my most vivid memory of the last two outings. It was kind of crazy, but also really wonderful, too.
Lisa: I am an avid reader, of course. I also enjoy boating,kayaking, traveling, cooking, and watching films with my hubby. I manage to squeeze some of this in now and then. Actually, I'm writing this looking out on Rue Des Pyramides in Paris. Not too bad.
Lisa: I would love to see one of my books on the big screen. But I could never answer the question about who might play Annie or Ridley. I see each of them so clearly -- especially Ridley -- that I'm not sure I am the best person to make this choice. Anyway, there might be some good news about this soon, so keep checking back at my blog for more in the weeks to come!
Lisa: Better Than I Could Have Imagined.
