” …[I]f I’m indefinitely stuck somewhere it would be nice to read about immortality.”
— Melinda Wyers
A member of the Writers’ League since February 2019, Melinda lives in Hutto.
Scribe: In what genre(s) do you write?
Melinda Wyers: I currently write mid to late Victorian Historical Fiction.
Scribe: What author would you most like to have a drink with, and what’s the first question you would ask them?
MW: Virginia Woolf. “Why would you try to cook eggs in bed?”
Scribe: If you were stranded on a deserted island, what book would you want to have with you to keep you sane?
MW: The Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson, if I’m indefinitely stuck somewhere it would be nice to read about immortality.
Scribe: What have you learned from your association with the Writers’ League?
MW: I’ve only started but hope to attend a few of the events this March and get to meet folks.
Scribe: Where do you see your writing taking you (or you taking it) in the future?
MW: I’m hoping to write at least two more books in the same genre or with the same characters, then move on to write about something more modern.
Scribe: Here at the Writers’ League, we love sharing book recommendations. What’s one Texas-related book that has come out within the past year that you couldn’t put down?
MW: I haven’t read one that has come out in the past year, most of what I read was written a while back but I’m starting research on Galveston in the late 1800’s (before the hurricane) so I’m about to jump into Isaac’s Storm by Erik Larson.
Scribe: Is there anything else about you that you would like to share with the world? An opportunity for blatant self-promotion!
Thank you, Melinda!
