Scribe: Welcome, writer! Tell us — what do you write?
Catherine Nixon Cooke: Mostly biographies and histories.
Scribe: If you could choose one author to blurb your book, who would it be, and what would you want it to say?
CNC: Candice Millard…..”This biography reads like an adventure story.”
Scribe: You have one book you’re allowed to push onto all of your friends, and they’re forced to read it to remain your friend — which one would you choose?
CNC: Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese.
Scribe: Tell us your WLT story.
CNC: Wonderful friend and author/poet Naomi Nye recommended that I join.
Scribe: Where do you see your writing taking you (or you taking it) in the future?
CNC: My writing has taken me on adventures all over the world and I hope it continues to do so.
Scribe: Here at the WLT, we love sharing book recommendations. What’s one book that has come out within the past few years that you couldn’t put down? (Bonus points if the book is Texas related!)
CNC: The Four Winds by Kristin Hannah.
Scribe: Is there anything else about you that you would like to share with the world? An opportunity for blatant self-promotion!
CNC: Very excited that my book, In Search of Tom Slick: Explorer and Visionary (Texas A&M University Press/2020), is in production as a podcast starring Andy Samberg.
