Everyone I’ve ever met who is a member at WLT has been a good friend.
A member of the Writers’ League of Texas for three years, Rebecca Nolen lives in Houston.
Scribe: In what genre(s) do you write?
Rebecca Nolen: I write middle-grade fiction – I have a published middle-grade historical fantasy. I also write adult suspense! I’ve won awards for my published novel Deadly Thyme, and I write and illustrate picture books as well — but I am not published yet.
Scribe: What author would you most like to have a drink with, and what’s the first question you would ask them?
RN: Rudyard Kipling. I would ask him where in the world he enjoyed living the most and why.
Scribe: If you were stranded on a deserted island, what book would you want to have with you to keep you sane?
RN: The Bible, because it would keep my hope alive.
Scribe: What have you learned from your association with the Writers’ League?
RN: Everyone I’ve ever met who is a member at WLT has been a good friend.
Scribe: Where do you see your writing taking you (or you taking it) in the future?
RN: A series of adult suspense – the Deadly series. And many partially illustrated picture books are waiting on my shelf for completion. I dream that happens soon.
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?
RN: I just finished Nikki Loftin’s book Wish Girl! Loved it.
Scribe: Is there anything else about you that you would like to share with the world? An opportunity for blatant self-promotion!
Houston Writers House (of which I am director) has published a Texas-themed anthology, which I illustrated!
