Scribe: In what genre(s) do you write?  

Nancy West: Suspense, a mystery series, a biography of artist Jose Vives-Atsara and magazine columns and articles. While in the throes of adolescence, I wrote poetry for the library journal, Pegasus. As an adult, I wrote the poem “Time to Lie,” for NPR. I’ve written essays on various subjects which I’ll add to my website. Come visit me on Facebook or on LinkedIn.

Scribe: What authors would you like to have coffee or a beer with and which beverage? 

NW: Dave Barry (for the humor), Ken Follett (for the suspense), and William Shakespeare (for language, character, setting, suspense, plot, etc.)  They can have coffee or beer. I’ll have wine.

Scribe: If you were stranded on a deserted island, what book would you want to have with you to keep you sane?

NW: The Bible, Shakespeare’s tragedies, To Kill a Mockingbird, William Kent Krueger’s Ordinary Grace, Jodi Picoult’s House Rules, and so many more.

Scribe: What have you learned from your association with the Writers’ League? 

NW: That I can never learn enough about writing. There are so many talented writers who have expertise in particular aspects of the craft, and I feel so fortunate to be a member of the tribe.

Scribe: Where do you see your writing taking you (or you taking it) in the future? 

NW: I’ll write at least one more Aggie Mundeen mystery, perhaps more. She and her friends are not through with me yet. I have an idea for a new series that I’m trying to suppress, for now. I have an idea for a biography and an idea for a book of literary fiction.

Scribe: Is there anything else about you that you would like to share with the world? An opportunity for blatant self-promotion! 

NW: Fit to Be Dead, was shortlisted for the Lefty Award for Best Humorous Mystery. Dang Near Dead was named a “Must Read” by Southern Writers Magazine.

If you’re in the Dallas area June 12 and 13, don’t miss these events with a slew of authors, including me. I’d love to meet more members of WLT.
