Nita DeBorde has been a member of the Writers’ League for two years and is attending the 2015 Agents & Editors Conference in June. She lives in Houston, TX.
Scribe: In what genre(s) do you write?
Nita DeBorde: Mainstream fiction with a hint of Sci-fi elements. Also, collaborative biography/memoir.
Scribe: What authors would you like to have coffee or a beer with and which beverage?
ND: James Rollins, and my drink would be coffee (honestly, though, it would probably be a Coke, or if we were at Starbucks, a Caramel Apple Spice!)
Scribe: If you were stranded on a deserted island, what book would you want to have with you to keep you sane?
ND: The Chronicles of Narnia.
Scribe: What have you learned from your association with the Writers’ League?
ND: I’ve learned that it is absolutely essential, and fun, to network with other authors. You get some great pointers and you have the chance to talk to people who understand the creative process and all the hard work that goes into writing a book.
Scribe: Where do you see your writing taking you (or you taking it) in the future?
ND: I would love to see some of my stories made into movies (what writer wouldn’t!). I love movies, so it would be a huge thrill to get to be a part of that creative process as well.
Scribe: Is there anything else about you that you would like to share with the world? An opportunity for blatant self-promotion!
ND: I’m fluent in French. I spent 15 years teaching high school French before leaving education in 2014 to focus on a full-time writing career.
