Small Talk with Teri

Meet Lynn Fulton, who lives in Martinez with Phil Jones, her husband of 26 years, and their son, Alexander. Lynn recently wrote a picture book for children that will be published by Knopf in the fall of 2018. She Made A Monster is about Mary Shelley and how she came up with the idea for Frankenstein. “It’s been a slow process. From my first draft to my latest revision, it’s taken about 10 months.” 

If you could go back in time, what would you tell yourself? To relax and try not to worry so much.

What do you worry about the most right now? I worry about our country and what’s going to happen given the way things are. When people start disbelieving in the power of democracy, I think that’s very dangerous. 

What do most people not know about you? I used to fence in college and met my husband in the fencing club at UC Davis.

Favorite memory from your childhood? Playing games with my sister. We used to play “ship,” where we’d pretend the couch was the ship and we were sailing on the sea, seeing whales and being stowaways.
