— Denise Bossarte

A member of the Writers’ League since May 2020, Denise lives in southeast Houston.

Scribe: In what genre(s) do you write?

Denise Bossarte: Dark urban fantasy, nonfiction – self-help, and poetry.

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

DB: Brandon Sanderson. How do you keep all the worlds and characters straight across your multiple series?

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

DB: The Talisman by Stephen King and Peter Straub

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

DB: Just joined!

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

DB: More in my series of dark urban fantasy. Audiobooks of my poetry and dark urban fantasy series. Recording them myself and with help of friends.

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

DB: My dark urban fantasy novel, GLAMOROUS, is a bronze medalist in the 2019 The Wishing Self Book Awards in Adult Fiction. It is also a 5-star Readers’ Favorite and an Amazon bestseller.

Two of my short stories in the world of GLAMOROUS also have received 5-Star Readers’ Favorite reviews: RETURN and BEGINNINGS. These are both Amazon bestsellers.

My unpublished nonfiction self-help manuscript, Thriving, was a quarterfinalist in the inaugural 2019 Booklife Prize Nonfiction Contest, Self-help category. It is entered into the 2020 Readers’ Favorite Nonfiction Self-help competition, winners to be announced in September. Hoping to find an agent for this once things get settled into a new normal.

Thank you, Denise!
