Interview with the Alyson

There’s an enlightening interview with Alyson Noel up at Vale’s Corner, with my very favorite quote being:

Did you always want to be an author?
Well, first I wanted to be a mermaid, and then a princess, but after I read my first Judy Blume book, ARE YOU THERE GOD? IT’S ME, MARGARET, I knew I wanted to try to write like that too.

Alyson also talks about a number of jobs she’s held on her way to being a YA author.
So readers, what other professions have you tried on your journey to being an author? Besides literary agenting and general publishing-ness, I’ve been a waitress at an Irish music pub, a lady in waiting to the Queen at a renaissance faire, the PA to the general manager of a huge concert venue in London, and the info desk girl at my college student center. Your turn!
