When did you first start writing?
I first started writing when I was in my late 20s - when I started college. I immediately enjoyed taking to a keyboard and writing from my heart.
Describe your desk
Neat and organized. Reference books are on a shelf above my computer at arms reach. I have two monitors to make research easier. A notebook is always right in front of me for note taking. My keyboard is on a pull-out shelf. After 5:00 pm, I typically have a glass of red wine next to my notebook.
