I am so happy to introduce another contributor to Fern & Fog!
Since I began reading, Ginny was my literature guru. We read a lot together growing up, side by side after school or crammed next to each other on a road trip. She introduced new ideas about authors, themes, character development, and writing style.
Ginny has never lost her love for reading and is now involved daily with the production of books in NYC. I am very happy about this of course, care packages filled with books are my favorite kind of packages, and Ginny knows this.
Without further ado, Ginny's introduction:
Hi! I’m Ginny Dominguez. I left the west coast three years ago, hoping to find a new job in New York City. I found the perfect one, and now I spend my days helping to make all kinds of books for kids.
I also overanalyze pop culture, play tabletop board games, cook, bake, and knit.
What is inspires you?
Great work. When I see something done really well (whether it be a book, a TV show, a craft, a home DIY), it makes me itch to start any kind of project myself.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve gotten so far?
Start a budget, and stick to it.
What do you think about when you are alone in your car?
I don’t have a car, but spend lots of time on the subway. I’m usually thinking about the next five things on my to-do list or people watching.
Cat or Dog person?
What is the song of the week for you?
I can’t narrow it to one song, but I’ve been listening to the soundtrack to Transparent (a great TV series on Amazon Prime) and the soundtrack to Monument Valley (a beautiful app/game).
If we came to your house for dinner what would you prepare for us?
A month ago I would have said Martha Stewart’s mac n’ cheese. But lately I’m having a bit of an existential crisis about this. I need a new signature dish.
What kitchen utensil would you be?
Definitely a spatula. They get all of the extra cake batter and cookie dough out of the bowl for you to eat.
When you are 80 years old, what would you tell your children?
Oh man. I can’t wait to tell my kids and grandkids about AOL and instant messenger services.
We are looking forward to sharing Ginny's latest book reviews, knitting instructions and perhaps a little bit about Brooklyn living!
