curt-locklearScribe: In what genre(s) do you write?

Curt Locklear: I write in several genres: contemporary, mystery, and historical fiction. My published novel is historical fiction.

Scribe: What author would you most like to have a drink with, and what’s the first question you would ask them?

CL: Were she alive, I would like to have a drink, probably tea, with Mother Teresa. I would ask her how she was able to persevere and do  so much good for the poor, and indeed for the world, despite incredible odds.

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

CL: I would have to have the Bible, but if I could bring along a fiction book, it would be Cold Mountain by Charles Frazier.

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

CL: I have attended some valuable workshops. I believe the people who run it are a confluence of geniuses. You know what writers need, and I applaud you.

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

CL: I believe in goal-setting, so I do not doubt that my books will ultimately take off and be sought after by all types of readers. Although my first novel trilogy is a historical fiction, many of my most enthralled readers do not typically read historical fiction. What I hear the most is something like, “OMG, I love this book. I love the characters.”

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?

CL: Anything by Anthony Whitt — sterling writing with strong characters. His books are about Texas cowboys facing incredible danger.

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

CL: I am a retired educator, having been a principal at elementary, middle school, and high school. I am an accomplished education consultant. In addition, I give talks about the Civil War or other historical eras, always accompanied by my banjo and guitar. I tell corny jokes and make the learning memorable and fun. I’m available to teach on writing, brain theory, and more. and email

Finally, it’s my humble opinion that Writers’ League rocks!

Thanks, Curt!
