Scribe:  In what genre(s) do you write?
Tess Anderson: I write fiction/memoir. I like to write short stories, and am in the process of putting some of those stories together in order to make a novel… which may end up just being a short story collection.

Scribe: What authors would you like to have coffee or a beer with and which beverage?
TA:  I don’t drink coffee or beer. However, I would love to have tea with Amy Tan and/or J.K. Rowling, a soda with Suzy Spencer. If we’re talking “living or dead” I would love to have any kind of cocktail with F. Scott Fitzgerald, Dorothy Parker, Ernest Hemingway, and Kurt Vonnegut.

Scribe:  If you were stranded on a deserted island, what book would you want to have with you to keep you sane?
TA: I am terrible at the “stranded island” game because I am terrible at choosing. I find it incredibly hard to pick one, but I might go with The Liar’s Club or something else by Mary Karr, since her novels are set in the area where I grew up. I think the familiarity would help me cope.

Scribe:  What have you learned from your association with the Writers League?
TA:  From the Writers League, I have learned that there are a lot of writers here in Austin, and that there are a lot of resources.

Scribe:  Where do you see your writing taking you (or you taking it) in the future?
TA:  Hopefully my writing will keep taking me on the paradoxical simultaneous journey both inward and outward. I’d like to publish either a novel or a short story collection.

Scribe:  Is there anything else about you that you would like to share with the world?

TA:  I have lots more to share the world, but the world will have to wait until I’m finished drafting and editing!
