Scribe: In what genre(s) do you write?
Holly Webber: I write mainstream women’s fiction. I also write movie reviews!
Scribe: What authors would you like to have coffee or a beer with and which beverage?
HW: I’d like to have a cup of tea with Rosamunde Pilcher. She can tell me what it was like to write entire novel manuscripts on a Hermes typewriter.
Scribe: If you were stranded on a deserted island, what book would you want to have with you to keep you sane?
HW: It would have to be Letting Go by David Hawkins. He would help me work through all the negative emotions I’d have about being stranded 🙂
Scribe: What have you learned from your association with the Writers’ League?
HW: Writing can be such a lonely sport, but my association with WLT has reassured me that none of us are really alone. I still remember how, at my first agent conference, I realized that WLT writers were super-cooperative and supportive of each other, rather than competitive.
Scribe: Where do you see your writing taking you (or you taking it) in the future?
HW: I’ve seen several of my writer-buddies get published this past year, and their success has given me the encouragement I need to put my own work out there and see what happens. Up until now, I’ve kept my manuscripts to myself.
Scribe: Is there anything else about you that you would like to share with the world? An opportunity for blatant self-promotion!
HW: I would like the world to know that I’ve written over 120 movie reviews at Movie Reviews for Mere Mortals, and that I’m the new on-staff movie reviewer for FactoryTwoFour. I’m also the only female on their editorial staff!
