Hi! If you didn't like writing books, what would you do for a living?
I actually went to school to be a YA librarian and almost finished my MLIS before I started touring for Spiderwick, so maybe that? I worked in publishing before and I am sure I would have wound up doing that in some capacity.
Right now, though, if I stopped writing books, I think I would teach writing. It's something I really love doing.Talking about other people's books is a lot less pressuring than talking about my own. Or maybe I could be a story consultant for Hollywood; I could swoop in, take apart stories all day, and then never have to stitch them back up. Fun!
