A member of the Writers’ League since May 2020, Denise lives in southeast Houston.
Scribe: In what genre(s) do you write?
Denise Bossarte: Dark urban fantasy, nonfiction – self-help, and poetry.
Scribe: What author would you most like to have a drink with, and what’s the first question you would ask them?
DB: Brandon Sanderson. How do you keep all the worlds and characters straight across your multiple series?
Scribe: If you were stranded on a deserted island, what book would you want to have with you to keep you sane?
DB: The Talisman by Stephen King and Peter Straub
Scribe: What have you learned from your association with the Writers’ League?
DB: Just joined!
Scribe: Where do you see your writing taking you (or you taking it) in the future?
DB: More in my series of dark urban fantasy. Audiobooks of my poetry and dark urban fantasy series. Recording them myself and with help of friends.
Scribe: Is there anything else about you that you would like to share with the world? An opportunity for blatant self-promotion!
DB: My dark urban fantasy novel, GLAMOROUS, is a bronze medalist in the 2019 The Wishing Self Book Awards in Adult Fiction. It is also a 5-star Readers’ Favorite and an Amazon bestseller.
Two of my short stories in the world of GLAMOROUS also have received 5-Star Readers’ Favorite reviews: RETURN and BEGINNINGS. These are both Amazon bestsellers.
My unpublished nonfiction self-help manuscript, Thriving, was a quarterfinalist in the inaugural 2019 Booklife Prize Nonfiction Contest, Self-help category. It is entered into the 2020 Readers’ Favorite Nonfiction Self-help competition, winners to be announced in September. Hoping to find an agent for this once things get settled into a new normal.
Thank you, Denise!
