” I haven’t been [a member of WLT for] long, but hope to learn a lot and meet a lot of folks at the upcoming Agents and Editors Conference.”
— Laura Bray
A member of the Writers’ League since March 2019, Laura lives in Boerne, TX.
Scribe: In what genre(s) do you write?
Laura Bray: Historical fiction, freelance nonfiction articles (travel, food/wine, community interest, business).
Scribe: What author would you most like to have a drink with, and what’s the first question you would ask them?
LB: Elizabeth Gilbert: “What is your strategy for putting your rear in the chair and words on the page every day?”
Scribe: If you were stranded on a deserted island, what book would you want to have with you to keep you sane?
LB: The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas.
Scribe: What have you learned from your association with the Writers’ League?
LB: I haven’t been here long, but hope to learn a lot and meet a lot of folks at the upcoming Agents and Editors Conference.
Scribe: Where do you see your writing taking you (or you taking it) in the future?
LB: Once I finish my current book (see below), I have three or four more ideas kicking around in my head. It will be fun to figure out which one to start on next.
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?
LB: Ticker by Mimi Swartz (also….cannot wait for Stephen Harrigan’s Big Wonderful Thing: A History of Texas).
Scribe: Is there anything else about you that you would like to share with the world? An opportunity for blatant self-promotion!
LB: I’ve recently completed work on my new author platform (www.laurabray.net), which includes a blog (“Write Before Ready”), Facebook page, and Twitter feed (@LauraBrayAuthor). My goal is to build an audience for my in-progress historical fiction novel Springs from Winter Rise.
Thank you, Laura!
