Secrets & Magic – Our Interview With THE LUNCH WITCH Author Deb Lucke

lunch_witch_interview_graphic

They say a good magician never reveals his secrets. But we guess the same maxim doesn’t apply to witches. Author Deb Lucke answered some questions we had regarding THE LUNCH WITCH and its creation. Have a burning question for Deb? Let us know and we will ask!

Q: How did you decide on Grunhilda becoming a Lunch Lady? 

DEB: One of my long-time friends, Cheryl Wilson, got a job as a lunch lady. She told me her new job title with pride and also with humor. I started thinking about what her job was like and then—me being me—I started imagining a lunch lady with secrets. I worked in the school cafeteria myself in college so I knew what went on behind the scenes. Somehow Cheryl who looks more like Olive Oyl than Grunhilda morphed in with my Great Aunt Hulda and several other older female relatives who impressed me with their heavily-gridled bodies and gruff manner when I was young. The book is dedicated to Cheryl.

Q: Did you consult with any lunch ladies while working on the book? 

DEB: Cheryl sent me photos of her cafeteria and told me a few stories. Since she isn’t a mean, old witch, they were mostly nice stories. I gathered from her that certain kids hang around and that none of the kids actually eat their lunches. I also spent a day with the lunch ladies at a local school in the Hudson Valley (I didn’t tell them why). I did a lot of drawings of the students eating and photographed the kitchen for reference. I go into schools to do readings so I always try and scope out the cafeteria.

In addition, I had another relative who was the Head Lunch Lady of an entire school district. She used to talk a lot about how to turn a cheese single into a sail on a chili “boat” and how to do that cost effectively for a thousand lunches. It’s a bit frightening the things I have stored in my head.

Q: Did any of them react in a special way to THE LUNCH WITCH?

DEB: Cheryl can’t wait until she gets a copy of the book. I’m a bit fearful how others might react. If anyone shows up at Papercutz in an apron and carrying a meat cleaver, you don’t know me.

Q: How do you feel about the feedback the graphic novel has received? 

DEB: I am thrilled with the response so far. It is so nice to see what readers find funny…or poignant. The reviewer that compared me to Roald Dahl is my newest best friend. Don’t take my word that she actually said that read it for yourself. http://jeanlittlelibrary.blogspot.com/2015/02/the-lunch-witch-by-deb-lucke.html?spref=fb
