Writing Space

I have to admit, I LOVE seeing other people's writing spaces. There's something almost voyeuristic about it, like we're seeing into their secret worlds, see where the "magic" happens.

In my case, Disarm was written in Salinas, California back in 2012. A lot of it was written in a coffeeshop called The Cherry Bean, but the novelettes were also mostly written in my makeshift office in the sitting area of our bedroom.

I mean, seriously, a folding plastic table!

And here, in the breakfast nook. And no, I don't have two giant iMacs. I just have the one that kept moving around the house depending on my mood.

We had the best view of the mountains behind our house.

Arrest, on the other hand, was written in several different states. Started in California, then as we PCSed out, was written partially in Oklahoma City, Norfolk, and finally finished in Miami.

Here my office is once again just the sitting area in our master bedroom. The problem with this new space is that it's considerably smaller than the one in California (ergo, messier!), and it quickly became too small and confining, even for a shorty like me. I don't even know how I managed to write Surrender with all that glare behind me.

Eye-spy a list of my current and future projects on the board. ;)

So I kicked the kids out of the toy room and made it my new office. It's HUGE, airy, and has a wonderful view of the lake. I can even do some weightlifting in here, it's so large.

Astro, our mini-schnauzer, loves it too.
There's a lake outside that window, promise. ;)

I hope you've enjoyed this little look into my life. How about you—do you have a writing space? I'd love to see it!

To celebrate the release of Arrest, I have created a "thin blue line" necklace especially for Elsie made of crystal beads on a sterling silver chain, with a pendant of St. Michael (patron saint of law enforcement) at the back.

I will be giving away this necklace along with a signed paperback copy of Arrest.

But wait, there's more!

I'm also adding a signed paperback of Disarm as well as a set of Henry's dog tags.

I will announce ONE winner on Wednesday morning. The giveaway is open worldwide. Good luck!

You can also buy a signed paperback HERE.


A few other things of note:

• It only NOW just came to my attention that a lot of my previous emails sent to the mailing list bounced, and it apparently had something to do with the return yahoo address I was using. I apologize if you didn't get emails about my previous releases. Fingers crossed that I've fixed the problem.

• If you'd like hints on what's to come, you can take a looksie inside my DISARM/ARREST Pinterest board. But beware, there may or may not be spoilers. ;)

The Italian DISARM

I've been notified that there's a bit of confusion when it comes to the Italian translation of DISARM, published by Newton Compton. Hopefully I can shed some light into the matter.

Back in 2012, I wrote a series of six novelettes about Henry and Elsie. After the series was done, I combined the six novelettes to make a full-length novel, titled DISARM, which is the first book in the Disarm Trilogy. The second full-length book is titled ARREST, and the third book is titled SURRENDER.

To summarize:
• DISARM: About Henry and Elsie
• ARREST: Also about Henry and Elsie
• SURRENDER: About Julie Keaton

I hope this clears up any confusion.
