Interview with Jo Vraca

What are your five favorite books, and why?
Books about family dynamics tend to rock my boat - The Corrections, anything by Anne Tyler, Gabriel Garcia Marquez. And of course tragic love!
What do you read for pleasure?
Lately, I've been reading biographies. The last few biographies include:
- Kids by Patti Smith
- Transformer, about Lou Reed
I'm about to start re-reading a bunch of Agatha Christie books that I found in my garage. I went through a huge Christie phase when I was around 19 so I'm looking forward to picking them back up.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Wow I read on everything. I have a Sony e-reader but my husband uses that for the most part. I also read on my android phone and android tablet.
Describe your desk
My desk is anywhere I can use my laptop - the sofa, dining table, cafe, park. I write wherever I get the urge and don't worry too much about the fixin's.
