Julie Chibbaro

Julie Chibbaro grew up in New York City wondering how so many people could live together without infecting each other with mortal diseases.  After attending Performing Arts High School for theater, she ran away to Mexico, where she survived an earthquake and a motorcycle crash and learned a little something about death.  Returning to New York, she decided to create her own fictional characters instead of playing one.  Julie Chibbaro is the author of Redemption, which won the 2005 American Book Award.  Julie teaches fiction and creative writing in New York.  You can also visit her at juliechibbaro.com.

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Take it to the edge of risk, then go a little further.

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. Samsa Superville

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. Weeds in my garden. They don't belong there, and they know it, but still they grow.

Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. Ice cream.

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. Mostly what I wonder about the past is: What really happened? When I read about Typhoid Mary, there was little information from Mary's point of view, and I'd like to ask her: "Why didn't you believe you carried the disease?" I'm reading about Washington Roebling, who engineered and built the Brooklyn Bridge, despite horrible physical pain from a diving disease (the bends), and I want to ask him, "What really made you so sick?" Even more than that, I'd like to ask his wife Emily Roebling if she was the real engineer behind the building of the bridge. But that's another story for another time!
