Maribeth Graham, reader/writer
I am also an avid reader. I enjoy reading everything and try to stay up to date with all the books getting buzz or hitting the NY times best sellers lists. I have made it a goal to read more of the classics. I recently purchased Great Expectations which I am eager to read. Some of my favorite authors are Edgar Allen Poe, Ray Bradbury, Lois Duncan, Neil Gaiman, Dean Koontz, Mitch Albom, Suzanne Collins, Jodi Piccoult, Shel Silverstein, S.E. Hinton (I guess you can say I have eclectic taste).
I have been blogging for about ten years. My current blog is titled Writing Like Crazy and can be visited at http://www.ninidee.wordpress.com
I can be found on Twitter @YolaRamunno
My publishing credits include -All You Magazine, Stories for Children Magazine, LCCC Annual Literary Magazine, Alien Skin and I once received payment from ABC studios for a short story about motherhood.
#1: This question was submitted by @lkhillbooks: If you have two books, both of which sound interesting and are the type of thing you generally read, how do you choose between the two? What are your deciding factors?
Answer: That someone would decide I was worth taking a chance on. I always hope someone sees potential and says “okay, let’s do it”. And if that were ever to happen, I would work my fingers to the bone so I would be worth the risk.

Thank You, Maribeth, and good luck with your writing. I encourage everyone to check out Maribeth's blog, as well as following up this interview with questions or comments of your own. I particularly would like to see some discussion of Maribeth's question/answer in response to #10. I think it would make a good conversation. What do you think?
