Today we welcome Carrie Stuart Parks, author and forensic art instructor, to 3 Questions Wednesday.
(1) What is your favorite book? [Bible excluded]
Carrie: What a difficult question for an author-we all tend to be consummate readers! As a child, I consumed every book by L. Frank Baum (The Wizard of Oz.) He wrote a total of fourteen books, of which I’ve managed to collect eleven (alas no first editions.) My other favorite author and primary book was Albert Payson Terhune’s Lad: A Dog.
(2) If you could walk into any book, what literary character would you want to be?
Carrie: Dr. Watson. Sherlock would be great fun to watch.
(3) If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Carrie: I actually have been around the world. If I’m traveling, not living, I’d revisit Israel. I’ve been there twice and would like to go again. If I had to live somewhere, I’m already there. My family’s 685 acre ranch in the mountains of North Idaho is glorious.
