SW-teen photo What should we call you?
Shannon

Where can we find you?
Douglass-Truth

Why teen services?
I love hearing about that thing that saved your teenage life, and maybe even being the one who introduced you to it.

Favorite reference resource (print and/or online)?
Be careful, you could get sucked into a black hole of research on http://tvtropes.org/Afterwards you will never watch tv, read a book, or write a story without making connections between all the plots, characters, and symbolism you’ve seen before.

Favorite book of all time and favorite book right now?
Alan Bradley’s The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie has my all-time favorite character, pintsize sleuth and poisoner, Flavia de Luce.

I love to read about unusual people, places, and times.  (Or all three.)

You live in Seattle To umbrella or not to umbrella?
An umbrella is a must, to match my galoshes.  Can you tell I spent a long time living outside Seattle?

The best thing about living in Seattle is…
SIFF, Archie McPhee, Scarecrow Video, all-night coffee.SW-current photo

We know you love Seattle but Where would you most like to live?
Glasgow, Scotland, or possibly Middle Earth.

What is your favorite word? 
Word is the best word.  I’m also fond of misanthrope, and the phrase “salad days.”

What is your motto?  
Make plans.
