Each week we’ll be inviting an author to share a peek at their writing space. This week it’s Elysa Hendricks, author of Star Crash (Star Chronicles).
Here are a couple pictures of my office. Notice the killer squirrels on top of the bookcase. The sign may say LOVE, but don’t mess with the squirrels.
For the first few years after I started writing my desk was smack in the middle of the family room, which I shared with one husband, two small boys, two cats, a dog and various hamsters, gerbils and mice. Writing there was a challenge. Then in our next home I moved my writing space into the bedroom. That’s when I purchased the computer armoire. There I could roll out of bed right into my desk chair and start writing. Worked out fairly well for several years. Of course, I rarely bothered to get dressed.
Then we moved again and I got my VERY OWN OFFICE! Now I have the computer armoire and a desk. And I even have a view out the window. The only thing the room lacks is a closet where I can hide the dead bodies of the characters I’ve killed off. But everything else fits – file cabinets, bookcases and a ton of miscellaneous objects to inspire me. Granted the space is usually messy – I cleaned it up a bit for the picture – but I spend most of my day in this room and it works for me.
The last book I finished up here is STAR CRASH.
When Planet of the Apes meets Star Trek what’s a girl to do?
After recon pilot Cora Daniels crash lands on an alien planet she finds herself a prisoner of the Flock: a race of birdlike humanoids. Trapped in their zoo she discovers they intend her to mate. To breed. To be part of their human herd.
She’s placed in a cage with a man – a powerful, virile man, but not just any man – Alexander. Was he her lost love, who’d disappeared so long ago? Here he was: naked, glistening, a warrior trained by the Flock to fight for their amusement. How could the brilliant man, the tender lover she remember have become this animal born to dominate and destroy? Was he a pawn of the Flock or would their flight to freedom be a long-sought reunion?
