Q&A: Stacy Kranitz


Have you recently been living by any life philosophy? Fantasy + Denial = Success. What was the last crime you witnessed? I spent a week observing cops bust home meth labs in May. What is your plan for the next 24 hours? I just woke up and got your email reminding me to answer these questions so I am sitting on the sofa with a cup of coffee typing on my computer. Then I will take my first shower in a week and hang out with my friend Colby and his family whose house I passed out at last night. In the morning I am driving down to Tennessee to spend time with my friend Derek and his family.

What part of the planet would you like to explore? Every Part. If you had to align yourself with a leader in history, who would it be? Harry M. Caudill. I find it so fascinating when leaders fall from grace and work backwards against their own agenda. Such a complicated and important man. Your favorite painter? I am partial to drawings. Ultimate camera? I’ll shoot with anything I can get my hands on.

Most used camera? My Nikon. Which living person do you most admire? My friends; Silvie, Isabel, Liz, Marisha and Kate. Incredible women. So happy to have them in my life. Who is your favorite hero of fiction? Christy Huddelston. What is the next book you want to read? Harriet Arnow’s, The Dollmaker.
