10 Questions for ... Julie Kenner

Julie Kenner is starting off the
New Year by saying goodbye -- with a pair of concluding books out this month. Turned, an urban
fantasy title from Ace, wraps up
her trilogy featuring Bostonian Lily
Carlyle, who returns from the dead
to battle the darkest of demons, while Moonstruck, a sexy romance from Harlequin Blaze, is the second of two books set around the holidays -- and closer to Kenner's Texas home -- to feature the Dallas dateless. Here, she reveals some of her favorite things.

Favorite Books: A Wrinkle in Time, Half Magic, The Pillars of the Earth, Atlas Shrugged, To Kill a Mockingbird, One for the Money, Grime and Punishment (Jill Churchill)

Favorite Authors: Ken Follett, Madeleine L'Engle, J.D. Robb. The list goes on and on.

Currently Reading: I'm multi-reading: I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You (love it!), The Spymaster's Lady. (awesome), The Count of Monte Cristo (fab, but loooooong), American Gods (fabulous).

Favorite Author Pals: Kathleen O'Reilly, Dee Davis,
Julia London

Pets: Tiger and Madam, both cats. (We lost Squeaky recently.)

Hobbies: Lately hobbies tie in with homeschooling, so chess is a big one. And traveling. And reading! One of these days I'm getting back into scuba diving. I miss it!

Biggest Extravagance: My current Mac obsession: iPhone, iMac, iPods. And my new front-loading Maytag washing machine (how pathetic is that?).

What I Dream About: A cabin in the mountains.

I never leave the house without: My iPhone

Best Childhood Memory: When I was 11, my grandmother took me to Switzerland. It was my first big trip, and it opened my eyes not only to different cultures but also to how much I love traveling. It was the first trip she took me on, but not the last, and while I remember the later trips much better than that first one, small details of that first trip still stick in my mind and make me smile, like the Lion of Lucerne, Lake Lugano and another lake so smooth and quiet that the mountains reflected on it like glass.
