Mary Strand practiced law in a large Minneapolis law firm for 16 years until the day she set aside her pointy-toed shoes (or most of them) and escaped the land of mergers and acquisitions to write novels. The first novel she wrote, Cooper’s Folly, won Romance Writers of America’s Golden Heart award and was published by Bell Bridge Books. Her four-book YA series, The Bennet Sisters, starting with Pride, Prejudice, and Push-Up Bras, is out now.

Mary lives on a lake in Minneapolis with her husband, two cute kidlets, and a stuffed monkey named Philip. When not writing, she lives for sports, travel, guitar, dancing (badly), Cosmos, and ill-advised adventures that offer a high probability of injury to herself and others.

This is an easy one: HOGWARTS! In truth, I'd sneak out to Hogsmeade as often as possible (using the Marauders' map) to drink butterbeer, which I haven't had since last week). And I'd find the room of requirements, and live in the Gryffindor tower, and have adventures. I have my doubts about the Forbidden Forest, however. :-)(less)
