Skinny Dip with Stephanie Greene

bk_Posey10What keeps you up at night?

Not much. If I do wake up and start wor­ry­ing about some­thing, I put my newest plot dilem­ma into my brain. Puz­zling over it puts me right to sleep.

What is your proud­est career moment?

I guess I’m most proud that I’m still com­ing up with fresh ideas after twen­ty years. I’ve writ­ten sev­er­al char­ac­ter-dri­ven series, some stand-alone books, sev­er­al anthro­po­mor­phic books, and new ideas con­tin­ue to arrive. Maybe I should call that a pro­fes­sion­al mir­a­cle.

What’s the first book you remem­ber read­ing?

The first book I remem­ber car­ing about, deep down, was The Secret Gar­den.

Were you a teacher’s pet or teacher’s chal­lenge?

bk_SophieDepends on what grade you’re talk­ing about. Not sure I was ever a pet, but I cer­tain­ly became a chal­lenge in mid­dle and high school.

What 3 children’s book authors or illus­tra­tors or edi­tors would you like to invite to din­ner?

Hilary McK­ay, E L Konigs­burg, Louise Fitzhugh

Where’s your favorite place to read?

Almost any­where. At night, in bed. In the morn­ing, on a bar stool at the kitchen counter. While I eat lunch, at the table. On a nice day, out­side. If it’s rain­ing … see what I mean? While in line at the gro­cery store, if it’s long. Any­where, any­time.
