Author Paula Danziger being interviewed by Scholastic students

What kinds of books did you read when you were little?
Answer: When I was real little I read books like The Little Engine That Could , and as I got older I read books like Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys, and I moved into more serious fiction.

Question: What education or skills do you need to be a writer?
Answer: The main skill is writing, and formal education is important to help us become well-rounded people, but you don't need a formal education to be a writer. HOWEVER, I do think it is important to go to college.

Question: What's the most fun about being an author?
Answer:When the book comes out and I love it. When I get to travel to places and meet people who love my book. My latest new fun thing happened last weekend; I went up to Syracuse to hear United Tates of America recorded as an audio book (with lots of kids acting in it). It was so much fun; I loved it. I was the teacher in the audio book. I also loved when I lived in England, talking about my books and other books. I mostly love the writing when it goes well.
