Are you fans of the Lowriders graphic novels? We are! And we can’t wait for the next one. The author who thinks up those great stories is Cathy Camper. We invited her to Skinny Dip with the Bookologist … and she said yes! When we asked her pointed questions, here’s what she had to say.
Favorite breakfast or lunch as a kid?
Eating cake for breakfast just like Two Bits in The Outsiders.
What’s your least favorite chore?
Making my stupid lunch. I work full-time and it’s never-ending! I make my lunch, go to bed, go to work, eat my lunch, go home, and have to make my stupid lunch all over again.
When are you your most creative?
When I have a little bit of something with caffeine, preferably dark chocolate, maybe a small gulp of coffee, then go for a run or walk, or some mindless activity that allows me to daydream. When the ideas start to come, I write them down immediately.
Best invention in the last 200 years?
Indoor plumbing and clean water, in particular, hot water WHENEVER you want a bath or shower, and clean water whenever you want a drink. I give great thanks for being born in a time and society where we have that luxury.
What’s your best contribution to taking care of the environment?
I never had kids. One less human.
Great interview!! I love the lowriders books! Cathy’s seed art is pretty awesome too!
I second what Kathy L. said about Cathy’s seed art…I always make a point of looking for it at the Minnesota State Fair!
Noticed your seed art at the State Fair a couple of weeks ago, Cathy – awesome!
