Where Writer’s Write
This is one of my several “workspaces”. I’m a mobile writer and I don’t do well in one spot for days on end. The picture included here is at my office (day job). My boss is gracious enough to let me work on my books during breaks or downtime, and since I’ve been here for well over 15 years, it’s really my office-cave. Complete with a custom red wall, Edgar A. Poe paraphernalia, and tons of books.
I also have an office at home. That one is probably one of my favorites because my huge white, leather chair and ottoman come with a fluffy white cat I call my “Foo-Foo”. It also has great natural lighting, gray walls, and lots of sunshine yellow highlights throughout the room.
Realistically, a lot of my writing takes place at my local coffee shop owned by my third cousin. They make to-die-for coffee and it’s just fun to sit in a central place in my community, wave at people I know, and study people I don’t know … mwahahahah!
Last but not least, I often can be found writing on my couch in my living room, or in my gramma’s chair by my living room window. Surrounded by, hollering children, the chaos of a weekend at home, my husband going in and out, and me yelling for my daughter to refill my coffee. It’s chaos, but I love it.

More about The Curse of Misty Wayfair
Left at an orphanage as a child, Thea Reed vowed to find her mother someday. Now grown, her search takes her to Pleasant Valley, Wisconsin, in 1908. When clues lead her to a mental asylum, Thea uses her experience as a post-mortem photographer to gain access and assist groundskeeper Simeon Coyle in photographing the patients and uncovering the secrets within. However, she never expected her personal quest would reawaken the legend of Misty Wayfair, a murdered woman who allegedly haunts the area and whose appearance portends death.
A century later, Heidi Lane receives a troubling letter from her mother–who is battling dementia—compelling her to travel to Pleasant Valley for answers to her own questions of identity. When she catches sight of a ghostly woman who haunts the asylum ruins in the woods, the long-standing story of Misty Wayfair returns–and with it, Heidi’s fear for her own life.
As two women across time seek answers about their identities and heritage, can they overcome the threat of the mysterious curse that has them inextricably intertwined?
