    About "Stephanie Spinner"

    1. Stephanie Spinner

      I was born in Davenport, Iowa, and grew up in Rockaway Beach, New York I read straight through my childhood, with breaks for food, sleep, and the bathroom I went to college in Bennington, Vermont, moved to New York City, and took a job in publishing so I could get paid for reading I read so much bad fiction that I needed a break, so I moved to London, and from there I traveled to Morocco, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan India, Nepal, and Ceylon I came back to America, wandered around some to Mexico, Guatemala, and Belize and on returning to New York decided to study Tibetan Buddhist painting called thangka painting in Boulder, Colorado.I painted thangkas for many years Each one took anywhere from several weeks to a few months to complete, and at long last I understood that this was not the ideal way for me to make a living Only a few hundred Americans collected thangkas, and they wanted old ones, painted by Tibetan monks It was time to make a change.So I took another publishing job, this time in children s books I found that I liked children s books a lot, and before long, I became an editor.Years passed I was encouraged to write I scoffed at the idea that I had anything to write about I edited some wonderfully talented authors Virginia Hamilton, Philip Isaacson, Clyde Robert Bulla, Gloria Whelan, Robin McKinley, Joan Vinge, Garth Nix, and Chris Lynch, among others with great enjoyment Writing seemed like torture by comparison.Then, to my amazement, I found myself writing a book and having a good time simultaneously The book was ALIENS FOR BREAKFAST, and I enjoyed writing it because my co author was Jonathan Etra Jon who died of heart disease in 1990 was a close friend with a wild sense of humor, and collaborating with him changed my opinion of writing forever After ALIENS FOR BREAKFAST, and ALIENS FOR LUNCH, which we also co wrote, I began to think that writing could be interesting fun.And now that I ve been doing it full time for than ten years, I can tell you why I like it better than a job First, I can work in my bathrobe To the FedEx man and the UPS man, I am the woman in the plaid flannel robe Second, I can eat when I m hungry, choose when to take phone calls, and walk my dogs any time Third, the only meetings I have and they re short are with the dry cleaner and the post office ladies Fourth, I can read whatever I please I may tell people I m doing research when I read about horse trekking, or hunting in ancient Greece, or 16 ways to better compost, but the truth is, I m not doing research, I m having a good time Which I think is still allowed.
