Interviews with Marilyn

Marilyn Singer, wiser in her books

“Marilyn Singer describes herself as a curious person—an accurate description when you consider the more than 50 children’s books she has written, including poetry, fairy tales, picture books, novels, mysteries, and nonfiction on a wide variety of topics.  ‘I like being called versatile,’ says Singer.  ‘I like that I write on lots of different things.'”

“Marilyn Singer is an award-winning author of children’s books in a wide variety of genres, including fiction and nonfiction picture books, juvenile novels and mysteries, young adult fantasies, and poetry. Among her many characters are a dog who insists he is not a dog, an armadillo, a young heart surgery patient, obsessive Lizzie Silver, Stryker the poltergeist, twin detectives named Sam and Dave–even a dog detective. ‘People often ask me why I write so many different kinds of things,’ Singer commented in an essay for the Something about the Author Autobiography Series (SAAS). ‘I tell them it’s because I have so many different parts to my personality, and each part has a different way of expressing itself. I tell them too that I like to challenge myself so that I’ll never be bored.'”
