How long have you been writing?
I’ve been writing for over 15 years.
What was your first published book?
An anthology of poems, essays, short stories called Pieces of Me.
Tell us about your writing space or home office.
Unfortunately, as of today I am writing in my bedroom. My sister moved in with me so space is tight. We hope to buy a house in September and I am so looking forward to having a room for craft and writing.
Anything special about your space?
When I get the space, I want lots and lots of bookcases. I have two right now and they are packed. So, I want more, because I love books especially those focused on the writing craft.
What do you love most about that area?
The peace to write and being surrounded by the creation of other authors.
What would like to change about your home office?
Nothing right now. But when I am ready I want to design it to look like an old English library.
If money was no object, what would your home office look like?
Definitely like an old English library. Wooden bookcases all around with an elegant desk and chair. Oh my, I can go on and on.
What office equipment do you use most, other than your computer?
Printer…Would love to get a real nice one that can print my book in its entirety.
What do you think is a must have for an efficient office?
Sound proof and cozy. Romantically decorated.
Are you a writing mom/dad?
I am the mother of a bratty fur-baby.
How do you juggle writing and family?
I will tell you it is not easy juggling work, dog, sister and nephew and writing. Often, I find myself without writing for days, but I then remind myself the book has got to get written. I am hoping that when we get the house I can have the special place for my writing.
What’s the last book about writing that you read?
Regency Slang Revealed.
What book or books about writing do you recommend for new authors?
The Artist’s Way
What do you like to read for relaxation?
