Marc lives in Fredricksburg, TX. He joined the Writers League before the 2013 Agents and Editors conference on the advice of his editor. He writes: I have lived in Fredricksburg most of my life but the old Germans would object to me saying I’m ‘from’ here. (“If your kittens were born in the oven would you call them muffins?” That rhymes in German.)
Scribe: In what genre(s) do you write?
Marc Hess: Literary Fiction, trying to use words for their social impact.
Scribe: What authors would you like to have coffee or a beer with and which beverage?
MH: Any of the dead ones because what a story that would make, eh?
Scribe: If you were stranded on a deserted island, what book would you want to have with you to keep you sane?
MH: Norton’s Anthology of English Literature. Nothing like the Brits to keep one sane.
Scribe: What have you learned from your association with the Writers League?
MH: Writing is a business and you have to work it like it’s your primary job.
Scribe: Where do you see your writing taking you (or you taking it) in the future?
MH: I want to generate words that will help open doors and cause readers to stop and reconsider the how we look at ourselves, others and the way we live together.
Scribe: Is there anything else about you that you would like to share with the world?
MH: I declare that I am “America’s Oldest Promising Young Writer.”
