I hate to be a party pooper, but I just don’t feel comfortable sending pictures of my current writing space because we’re in the middle of remodeling! Our house is literally a construction zone. We had water damage and now we’re trying to recover. It’s just a mess over here!
As an author of paranormal and fantasy fiction, however, I CAN give you pictures of my fantasy workspace! Actually, it’s not really that far-fetched. Here’s the goal my husband and I are working very hard to accomplish through my writing and his game development: We want to move to Ireland! The land of faeries and magic!!! Crazy, right?
Not as crazy as you might think. While I was a Ground Radio Maintenance Technician in the US Air Force, I actually lived in the UK for about 2.5 years (RAF Alconbury) and in Germany for 3.5 years (Rhein-Main AB and Ramstein AB). Additionally, we have friends that live in Northern Ireland and I have an uncle in Chiswick (pronounced chiz-ick), so we wouldn’t be moving over there without some kind of experience or contacts.
So what does a paranormal and fantasy fiction author want to have as the ideal writing place? Why an adorable cozy cottage, of course!! Picture if you will…waking up in the morning, grabbing a steaming cup of coffee and sitting at a small, wrought-iron table and chair just outside the back door? Ahhhhh…the Irish countryside and rolling green hills spread out for miles. The quiet solitude of the country soothing the soul. I had something very similar to this when I was in England and started writing seriously as a profession. The terrain was so inspiring!
How about you? You don’t have to be a writer to share...what is your fantasy home or workspace? Is there a country or state where you’d like to retire or a place you’ve always wanted to visit? Do tell!!! I’d love to hear about some of your dreams. Ah, let me clarify…on where you’d like to live or your workspace. None of those weird dreams you’ve had where the cat walks backwards or your next-door neighbor is standing buck-nekkid in his backyard and you wake up in a cold sweat. Please, save those for another post. :D

Widow of an abusive husband, Davina Stewart-Russell clings to the only image that gave her strength during those dark times—the Gypsy rogue who stole her heart as a youth. After nine years, she is finally face-to-face with him again, but reality clashes with fantasy as she is confronted with Broderick’s passionate pursuit.
When Davina’s past returns to haunt her, Broderick is forced to reveal a dark secret worse than anything Davina thought possible. The challenge before them has fatal risks and neither of them is prepared for the sacrifices expected for the sake of eternal love.
After being away at fencing school for seven years, James Knightly has returned as a master swordsman, ready to captain his own ship and finally wed his childhood sweetheart, Cailin MacDougal. What he finds waiting for him is a dagger-toting hellion for a bride, an immortal father-in-law, and an enemy bent on extracting revenge by threatening the family James holds most dear--the MacDougals.
Broderick MacDougal is lured away from his family with the promise of-at last-learning a way to protect those he loves from his clan enemy, Angus Campbell. Broderick knows he's headed for a trap, but the bait is too tempting to resist...and he unravels the beginning of a prophecy that will lead to redemption for all vampires. The cost of such redemption, though, may be the very soul of the woman he would die for...his wife, Davina.
