Bestselling Author of "The Lace Reader," BRUNONIA BARRY - Interview Now Playing


Bestselling Author of "The Lace Reader," BRUNONIA BARRY

Jul 11, 2010

 Brunonia Barry, Bestselling Author of The Lace Reader

Born and raised in Massachusetts, Brunonia Barry studied literature and creative writing at Green Mountain college in Vermont and at the University of New Hampshire and was one of the founding members of the Portland Stage Company. While still an undergraduate at UNH, Barry spent a year living in Dublin and auditing Trinity College classes on James Joyce’s Ulysses.

Barry’s love of theater led to a first job in Chicago where she ran promotional campaigns for Second City, Ivanhoe, and Studebaker theaters. After a brief stint in Manhattan, where she studied screenwriting at NYU, Barry relocated to California because she had landed an agent and had an original script optioned. Working on a variety of projects for several studios, she continued to study screenwriting and story structure with Hollywood icon Robert McKee, becoming one of the nine writers in his Development Group.

Brunonia’s love for writing and storytelling has taken her all across the country but after nearly a decade in Hollywood, Barry returned to Massachusetts where, along with her husband, she co-founded an innovative company that creates award-winning word, visual and logic puzzles. In recent years, she has written books for the Beacon Street Girls, a fictional series for ‘tweens. Happily married, Barry lives with her husband and her only child that just happens to be a 12-year-old Golden Retriever named Byzantium. The Lace Reader was her first original novel.

Barry is the first American Writer to win the Woman’s International Fiction Festival’s 2009 Baccante Award (for The Lace Reader.) Her second novel, The Map of True Places was published on May 4, 2010.

jeh44: Tenacity
at Oct 24, 2011 - 11:53 AM
Brunonia's story of spending not only seven years writing one book, but of spending decades developing herself as a writer while forced to support herself with other work, and in the process discovering she was not a journalist, not a screenwriter, but a novelist, is one of the most endearing and inspiring stories of what writing entails that I have ever heard.  Tenacity is not quite the same as determination, which implies a fierce will.  Brunonia seems to have applied herself to her work as a writer with a combination of humility, self respect, and faith.  I find this way of being, which preceded her success, to be both educational and reassuring.

I can't wait for more.

David Mamet recommends CJ Jung's book, "Memories, Dreams, Reflections". In it he explains many dreams and 'Synchronicity'.

After the McKee-live-chat today I watched this interview - it's excellent! I ordered 'The Lace Reader" as well as the 'Map of True Places'. It is so easy to support writers like Brunonia Barry. I have recently felt the desire to write a novel over screenplays although I have my first 2/3 completed. I don't know what it is but this interview struck a chord with me - Well done Storylogue!

Excellent interview, especially the "synchronicity" matters, and this author's creative dreaming, timelines,intersections both in time and place. Thanks!

I am writing my first novel, still in the first draft, it was very interesting to here how Brunonia went through the process of getting her book The Lace Reader published. Is there more to that interview that you could post?
Also would you ever think of having a workshop for writers again?
