Get to Know a Rep: Nic
We decided it would be fun to “reintroduce” ourselves to you, so we will be running “Get to Know a Rep” posts the next few weeks to give our readers a little more information on the people writing this blog! Monday, we featured Deanna. Today, get to know Nic better, and we will end this week with Erin. Hope you enjoy this! As always, if you have more questions for us, please leave them in the comment section and we’ll respond there.
1. What is your favorite genre to read for fun?
It changes often, but lately I am really into Food Writing! I’m currently listening to Blood, Bones and Butter by Gabrielle Hamilton.
2. What was a job you’ve had that our readers would find surprising?
I was an assistant manager for the Original Cookie Company one summer while home from college. I don’t think I ate anything but white chocolate macadamia cookies until I went back to college!
3. What do you like to do when you’re not working?
Hike, Camp, Run, Visit Microbreweries, Haunt Farmers Markets, Knit.
4. Do you have a favorite memory of meeting or working with an author?
I don’t know if I would call it a favorite memory, but it’s a vivid one! Libba Bray made me confess to David Levithan that I have a literary crush on him. He was very gracious, I blushed like crazy, and I will never tell Libba Bray anything ever again.
5. What’s your favorite childhood bookstore?
We didn’t have a bookstore in the town I grew up in. But we had a public library! We went to the library every weekend and checked out all the books we would need for the week. I always wanted to check out Little Critter – Just Me and My Dad. They had a version that came with a tape and I LOVED it! My Mom had to limit the number of times I could get it per month, otherwise I would have worn the tape out!
