Lisa B. Thomas: I write Cozy Mysteries. Mine are based on realism. No talking cats or witches.
Scribe: What author(s) would you like to have a drink with, and what beverage?
LBT: Harper Lee (too late) and Stephen King. We’d have Dr. Pepper, of course, and I would pick his brain about his creative use of language.
Scribe: If you were stranded on a deserted island, what book would you want to have with you to keep you sane?
LBT: To keep me sane, I would want ‘To Kill a Mockingbird.” It transports me to a different time and place every time I read it.
Scribe: What have you learned from your association with the Writers’ League?
LBT: I’ve learned that even though writing is a solitary endeavor, there are lots of people available to support you.
Scribe: Where do you see your writing taking you (or you taking it) in the future?
LBT: That’s a hard one. I enjoy writing my current series and plan to introduce a new one soon. I just hope to keep finding new readers and bringing a little entertainment to others.
Scribe: Here at the Writers’ League, we love sharing book recommendations. What’s one Texas-related book that has come out within the past year that you couldn’t put down?
LBT: The Devil’s Chessboard by David Talbot. I just love a good JFK conspiracy theory.
Scribe: Is there anything else about you that you would like to share with the world? An opportunity for blatant self-promotion!
LBT: My website is www.lisabthomas.com. If you love a good, clean mystery, check out my “Cozy Suburbs Mystery Series.” I hope to meet other members who live in the area.
