I've realized that the flow slows when I don't have a good vision of the scene I'm trying to write. In those cases, I get away from the keyboard and take a walk or lie in the bathtub and try to think the scene through. Once I've thought it out, then I'll return to the keyboard. (less)

Some other great things are that I can work in my pajamas or yoga pants. No suits required like I had to wear in my earlier jobs. I also like that I can work anywhere I can take my laptop. A coffee house. The library. Even outside or at the dog park. I also love the fact that my work produces something that is unique and that no other person would do the same way. There are just so many great things about being a writer!(less)

Just one more week until the release of DEATH, TAXES, AND CHEAP SUNGLASSES, book #8 in the IRS Special Agent Tara Holloway series. I can hardly believe it. I originally wrote the first book as a stand-alone, but a wise agent suggested I expand it into a series. So glad I listened to her! Get a sneak peek here:
