“Belonging to a community of writers brings confidence and offers a lot of support. “
— Danielle Jaussaud
A member of the Writers’ League since January 2018, Danielle lives in Austin, TX.
Scribe: In what genre(s) do you write?
Danielle Jaussaud: Narrative nonfiction.
Scribe: What author would you most like to have a drink with, and what’s the first question you would ask them?
DJ: Janet Walls. I would ask: What prompted you to write your story, and did writing about the difficult moments of your childhood bring healing?
Scribe: If you were stranded on a deserted island, what book would you want to have with you to keep you sane?
DJ: The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint Exupery.
Scribe: What have you learned from your association with the Writers’ League?
DJ: Belonging to a community of writers brings confidence and offers a lot of support.
Scribe: Where do you see your writing taking you (or you taking it) in the future?
DJ: I’d like to write about historical and political figures passionate about promoting peace and justice.
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?
DJ: Riverwoods: Exploring the Wild Neches by Charles Kruvand.
Scribe: Is there anything else about you that you would like to share with the world? An opportunity for blatant self-promotion!
DJ: A long time ago, my high school friends decided that I would one day be either a journalist, or a spy. Funny how close they were, as I have been a little of both in my quest for adventures.
Thank you, Danielle!
