Meet the Members: Stina Leicht

“”If I ever met Ursula K. LeGuin, I’d thank her for being so amazing.”

-Stina Leicht

A member of the Writers’ League since June, Stina Leicht lives in Austin.

Scribe: In what genre(s) do you write?

Stina Leicht: Science Fiction and Fantasy.

Scribe: What author would you most like to have a drink with, and what’s the first question you would ask them?

SL: If I ever met Ursula K. LeGuin, I’d thank her for being so amazing.

Scribe: If you were stranded on a deserted island, what book would you want to have with you to keep you sane?

SL: It’d have to be Ray Bradbury’s Something Wicked This Way Comes.

Scribe: What have you learned from your association with the Writers’ League?

SL: I’m looking forward to meeting more local writers!

Scribe: Where do you see your writing taking you (or you taking it) in the future?

SL: My hope is to actually win a literary award—not just get nominated. I also hope to sell more novels as well as short stories.

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?

SL: A Texas author you should be on the look out for is Nicky Drayden. Her Prey of Gods is a fun read.

Scribe: Is there anything else about you that you would like to share with the world? An opportunity for blatant self-promotion!

SL: I’ve four published novels: Of Blood and Honey and Blue Skies from Pain (a duology set in Northern Ireland during The Troubles); and Cold Iron and Blackthorne (books one and two of an Epic Flintlock Fantasy series.) Blackthorne just came out in August, and it was published by Simon & Schuster’s Saga Imprint. I’m currently working on a feminist science fiction novel titled Persephone Station for the same publisher. It’ll debut in 2018. I’m a two time Campbell Award nominee and a Crawford Award nominee.

Thanks, Stina!
