“I’m working on my second book in a trilogy and I see this trilogy being made into a TV series. In addition, I am a ghost writer and I see myself working on epic family tales and quirky life stories.”

Scribe: Welcome, writer! Tell us — what do you write?
Elise Krentzel: Memoir, non-fiction how-to, and management books
Scribe: If you could choose one author to blurb your book, who would it be, and what would you want it to say?
EK: Cameron Crowe: “Elise might’ve been almost almost famous, except for the fact that she wrote her wild story a couple of decades after mine. It’s a journey into the world of rock music and the east mores of the 1970s and how one girl changed her life forever. On the road with Kiss and traveling in Europe.”
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?
EK: None Dare Call It Treason. This book was written in the 1970s and is a brutally honest account of America’s undemocratic policies around the world and at home. I push it on all my friends so they could actually see the damage that this Omni country and culture has done around the world onto its own citizens.
Scribe: Tell us your WLT story.
EK: None yet!
Scribe: Where do you see your writing taking you (or you taking it) in the future?
EK: I’m working on my second book in a trilogy and I see this trilogy being made into a TV series. In addition, I am a ghost writer and I see myself working on epic family tales and quirky life stories.
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!)
EK: Killing Commandatore by Haruko Murakami.
Scribe: Is there anything else about you that you would like to share with the world? An opportunity for blatant self-promotion!
EK: My first book in my memoir trilogy Under My Skin – Drama, Trauma & Rock n Roll was #1 in 9 categories on Amazon. Book two in the series, A Rogue Entrepreneur and How She Did It Around the World is almost completed. www.elisekrentzel.com.
