Ten words to sum up your working life to date ...
Spending every minute writing books thrilling and fun for readers.
Nine things you can see from where you're sitting ...
The hotel room walls where I’m appearing at a writers’ convention.
The outline of the next book I’m working on.
The computer on which I am writing this.
The router that is connecting me online.
A cup of cold Starbucks coffee from breakfast.
A bottle of Crown Royal whiskey, unopened, as it is early afternoon (I have my standards).
A suitcase filled with one week’s worth of dirty clothes, as I’ve been on the road that long.
A flyer advertising the Mob Museum in Las Vegas, which I have just toured.
My broken prescription eyeglasses (sniff) and the bag of drug store reader glasses that will temporarily replace them.
Eight minutes to prepare a meal. What's it going to be ?
So many options. Since it’s a cold winter’s day: Onion soup, made with Vidalia sweet onion, sliced tenderloin, beef stock flavoured with a dry sherry and thickened with a roux of butter and flower, topped with Swiss cheese. Steamed green beans. A rocket salad with feta. A baguette. A pinot noir from Burgundy.
