    **I am not a teacher**

    1)the interviewer presumably asked Donna T.:"which books dis you read when you were a child?

    The interviewer presumably asked Donna T., "Which books did you read when you were a child?" <The interviewer asked Donna this exact question>

    2)Although The Lady in the Lake is not Chandler's masterpiece, it is one of his best novels.

    <You will want to check the rules for punctuating books and stories. Some need to be in quotes and some are italicized. Either way, the title should be capitalized.>

    3)many authors have influenced Donna T. own work.

    <Donna possesses her work. "Donna T.'s own work" versus "her own work".>

    4)Donna T. career as a writer started several years ago.

    < See #3. >

    5)T. probably loves books because she was often read to as a child.

    6) Most children enjoy someone reading to them.

    7) Reading and writing fiction seem to be more important to T. than anything else.

    8) Donna T. has quite likely started writing a new novel since the interview was held.

    <No comma needed in this sentence>
