You’re making a float based on one of your books for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. What do you do?

For a float: A giant cabbage surrounded by the animal friends: Moose, bear, wolf, fox, hare, old porcupine, and little vole.

But I would much prefer a Macy balloon of Moose in his denim overalls and red high-tops.

The main character for your next book is a dessert. Yes, the yummy after-dinner thing. What dessert is it?

Chocolate MOOSE, of course. 🙂

What’s an Alaska person or place or situation or theme you’d like to write and/or illustrate a book about?

It was an idea that I had, but it was already done (alas, badly).

A celebrity falls in love with your book and sings its praises on a tv show, thus making you rich, famous, beautiful, smart, physically fit, etc. Who is this celebrity and what is the show?

I don’t watch television so I am not sure what you are looking for here.

What Alaska wildflower represents your work in progress?

Fireweed
