Living the Writer’s Life

I love being a writer in a small California town where the fog and the fire danger collide, with a good bookstore, a great library, endless walking trails, friends and fellow writers, quirky characters, roaming wildlife, and abundant coffee.

Because writers must write, the day begins with coffee.

Because dogs must walk, we walk.

Because research makes our stories rich, we travel and even cook in search of the past.
Oh, and we sit at desks, and SIT and SIT and SIT, spinning stories out of our heads.

We gather with other writers and meet you, our readers. 

And at the end of the day, after chores are done
and we walk the dog again, there may be
a glass of wine on the deck and a good
British mystery on TV to share with my love.
