GUTGAA meet and greet

-Where do you write? - The den. Used to be my husband's, until I grabbed it.

- Quick. Go to your writing space, sit down and look to your left. What is the first thing you see? Well, that would be the table, with my son's trumpet, a bag of half-eaten chex mix (spicy), and a pile of papers on which I jot down important stuff.

-Favorite time to write? - Night. After everyone's gone to sleep.
-Drink of choice while writing? - Tea

-When writing , do you listen to music or do you need complete silence? Hard to find silence, except at night. (or early morning)

-What was your inspiration for your latest manuscript and where did you find it? - Not sure. The idea just popped up and I jotted it down. It kept getting bigger, the more I wrote.

-What's your most valuable writing tip? Take advice from people, but have enough confidence in yourself to trust your writing skills. And don't give up.
