ETA: I never did my mini-bio! :) I am a 34-year-old mother of three (9 yo boy, 7 yo girl, and 5 yo girl). I teach pre-k and Sunday School, and direct the Handbell Choirs at my church. So ... yeah. I generally have a To-Do List a mile long. I write YA.
-Where do you write?
Usually sitting in my bed. I have a laptop, and my bedroom is usually the quietest place in the house (three kids!).
-Quick. Go to your writing space, sit down and look to your left. What is the first thing you see?
My coffee cup. I have a flowered Tervis tumbler that is my constant companion. LOL.
-Favorite time to write?
I'm not sure I have a favorite time. Anytime I can find time is my favorite. (I have three part time jobs and three children, so time is hard to come by!)
-Drink of choice while writing?
COFFEE! Or, after 6pm, water.
-When writing , do you listen to music or do you need complete silence?
I listen to music. I have a playlist for each manuscript. For some reason, I have to listen to it with earbuds, though. If I just have it playing through the computer, it bothers me. (Weird, I know.)
-What was your inspiration for your latest manuscript and where did you find it?
The idea for my latest manuscript came to me while I was doing yoga, and trying to let go of a painful rejection, which brought up the question, "What if I had to use yoga to get past something more traumatic than a rejection?" And my story MEDITATION was born. LOL
-What's your most valuable writing tip?
It's not "what happens next?", it's "what would my character do next?"
Thanks for stopping by! I will be around to visit the other participating blogs throughout the week.
