Where you write often sets the tone for what you write. I am my most creative when I write in my own space. It is an office in our home. My office is a small room, overcrowded with books and memorabilia, but I am happy here. I am with the people, places and things I love.
The books on my shelf are ones I have read. Many of them have been around for decades, they are a bit worn but no less loved. On the bookshelves there are also a dozen or more framed photos – they keep me close to my family and friends, they remind me of vacations we’ve enjoyed and even the dogs I’ve loved and lost.
