Questions about Jeanne

Did you always want to be a writer?
I didn't really set out to “be a writer.” I just wrote. Reading and writing have always been my favorite things, though for a while I wanted to be a writer and an illustrator. I still have my very first book, which I wrote when I was about five years old.
What are some of your favorite books?
There are so many it's hard to say, but I'll list a few. As a young reader, I loved the Narnia books by C.S. Lewis, Tom Sawyer, by Mark Twain; The Secret Garden, by Frances Hodgson Burnett; the Doctor Dolittle books by Hugh Lofting;Alice in Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll; and hundreds of others. Later I loved mystery and science fiction, especially books by Agatha Christie and Ray Bradbury. Some of my favorite writers are Charles Dickens, Jane Austen, and the Brontë sisters. Among today's writers for young people, I admire Lois Lowry, Richard Peck, Hilary McKay, David Almond, and many more.
What other books have you written?
I've written several non-fiction books. Some of them are for classroom use—you don't find them in bookstores. Others are out of print. My current books areThe City of Ember, The People of Sparks, The Prophet of Yonwood,The Diamond of Darkhold, and Car Trouble
