Each week we’ll be inviting an author to share a peek at their writing space. This week it’s K.J. Jackson, author of Flame Moon.
1. Squished cushions. There’s a sweet spot, where I can sit and still gain a nice flat surface on the next cushion for the mouse (I’m so not partial to the laptop’s mousepad.)
2. Diet Mt. Dew. An embarrassing daily amount. But I cut myself off at 1 pm (2 if I’m dragging).
3. TV on. Usually no sound. Almost always playing an episode on Netflix from the Ken Burns documentary, The National Parks: America’s Best Idea. Love this series and do a shout out to it whenever I get the chance. I thank everyone who was involved in creating it. And I’m hoping to bump into Ranger Shelton Johnson someday. He is passion epitomized.
4. The dog. Wiley (official dogtag name: A. Wiley Dog). Faithful companion. Usually flops an ear onto my computer, then gets annoyed at me when I bump it. It’s an epic struggle. But I love him just the same. No better writing partner.
5. Trees. Pretty important to me — something to stare at when I’m plotting.
6. Laptop. Usually playing some tunes via carefully crafted Spotify playlists.
7. Heater. I’m cold. All the time.
8. Kleenex. Always handy, ridiculous amounts are burned through. I’m actually surprised the CEO of Kimberly Clark tissue has not called to personally thank me for my consumption of Kleenex throughout the years.
9. Blankets. See #7.
10. Fresh flowers. Sweet to have when they’re in bloom. This is one of the last batches before a freeze comes. Special treat just for me (except that those showy-ball flowers stink like skunk…what we suffer for beauty).
11. Usually a Men’s Journal laying around. Some of the most well-written articles one will find in magazines today. Always interesting and just plain smart. I’ve thought about lobbying them to change the name to people’s journal, so more women will read it.
What you didn’t get to see: a fantastic mountain of toys on the other side of the room. Of course I just shoveled them off to the side for this picture…glamourous life I lead…
Thanks for checking out my space, and happy reading!
Skye Walters thought waking up on the side of a river with no memory was her biggest problem. She had no idea that the man who had saved her from drowning, the man she now depended on, Aiden, was more than mere mortal. A warrior of ancient.
No memory, nowhere to go, Skye stays in the mountain town, only to discover she herself, has unexplained powers. Her life, her destiny, are soon out of her control, as are her feelings for Aiden. The deeper Skye gets sucked into Aiden’s hidden world, the more the past, and who she really is, threatens her future, her love, her sanity.
