My Writing Abode
I recently moved to the Burbs—a suburb of
Houston—from a condo in the Medical Center to a house. With four books
out, one soon to be released by The Wild Rose Press and another under
contract with TWRP, I feel like my office is now an author’s den. I
have a bookcase and filing cabinet, a desk with a laptop and an
additional filing cabinet on top of which is the printer. Totally out
of character is an old cedar chest which belonged to my mother, housing
some quilts that she handmade. Truth is, I had no other place in the
house for it, but it is too dear to part with.
On the walls are
colored prints of three angels done by Ruth Thompson: Michael, Gabriel,
and Uriel. Long ago, I bought these at a sci-fi con. See why they can
So, in this room overlooking my backyard, I write
books and copy for an advertising agency. I even have a title with the
agency, Content Strategist, but I have the luxury of working from home
in my robe and slippers!
The book soon to be released is Love For
Sale—sentient androids, completely humanlike, programmed for love. We
are in edits on my book about the horsy set called Gambler’s Choice, a
gothic romantic suspense. Gambler’s Choice is the name of the horse in
the book, but the name comes from a class in horse shows. The class is a
timed event and at the end of all the riders’ rounds, the fences are
raised for those riding a clean round (didn’t knock down any fences).
I’m very excited about both books and am happy to be a Rose.
