What does your writing space look like?

My writing space changes, depending on where I am. I often write from bed, or a quiet little nook. At the moment I’m writing in a garage. Mainly there needs to be no noise/disruption and preferably no view to distract me.


If you could spend a day with another popular author (living or dead), who would you choose and why?

Agatha Christie. Because: HOW?


How do you celebrate when you finish your book?

Hmmm... the honest answer to this is: I don’t. I should, I must, I will, but currently, I don’t. I just get a bit sad for a week because the story I have lived in for the past year or so is no longer a part of my life, and then I start on the next one.


Is there something you do/have while writing that helps your process? (Music, snacks, etc.)

Coffee, noise cancelling headphones, brown noise.


What book are you currently reading?

The Guest by Emma Cline and Sex & Rage by Eve Babitz
