Ciao Nanda84

**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. :up:

6) Most children enjoy someone reading to them.

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

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

<No comma needed in this sentence>


-buona fortuna-
