Interview with Author Nicole Borgenicht

Nicole Borgenicht is a children's fiction writer. Her most recent picture book is The Bridge published by Publish America. Some of Nicole's other kid's stories have appeared in The Los Angeles Times Kid's Reading Room section, Stories for Children Magazine and LadyBug Flights Magazine. Additional works comprise poetry and essays, short stories, one act plays or articles  in magazines such as Arts and Entertainment Skyline and American Fitness.
Could you tell us a little about yourself?

I am a freelance writer, and I love to write fiction most of all. My published works have included kid’s books, short stories, a one act play, tons of articles, a produced spot on NBC, and more.

Would you describe your desk or workspace?

I have a great desk and office area, but in fact once I bought a laptop, I usually work on the dining room table because the view is a beautiful bucolic vision. 

What are you currently reading?

I am reading Write Your Book Now! by Gene Perret. It’s a great book and reminder of different ways to get it done.

What is the best advice you've ever received?

“Have fun with it!” Gene Perret regarding writing - of course he’s a comedy writer!

If you could have coffee with anyone (living or dead, real or fictional), who would it be and why?

Hemingway. I think he really wrote what he wanted and the way he wanted to. 

What are your top three favorite books and why?

Old Man and the Sea by Hemingway, inspiring about challenges and dimensional goals

The Spy Who Came in From the Cold by Le Carre’, he creates a range of characters without favor, but still present an author’s undercurrent of humanity

Short Stories by Joyce Carol Oates, she has the skill and creativity to tell a far deeper story than meets the eye and her character subtext is fascinating.

What was your favorite book as a child and why?

I liked Sword in the Stone. It restored my faith and I liked the imaginative and heroic aspect of the story.
Do you write full-time or part-time?

Could you share about any current writing projects?

I am working on a chapter outline and some scenes for The Kids of Dandelion Township II.

What would be the best way for readers to contact you?

I agree. I think we allow the worry over getting published take away from the beauty of creating a story.

Great interview. Thanks for sharing.

Looks like a cute book. I like the advice; "Have fun with it!" That's right - why do it if it isn't fun?

Thanks for the great interview.

I bet writing comedy isn't as much fun as it sounds. I bet it's pretty stressful to get it right. Not that I've tried to write it. :)
