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.
