What do you do when you have a two-book contract? Well, after the celebratory drinks and nachos, you write.

And write.
And write.
And edit.
And write.

Part of this process is writing wherever you can, even if the circumstances are, say, less than ideal....

On the bed. (Not shown: Kif, snoozing underneath.)

In the garden, harassed by starlings. (Shown: Kif snoozing.)

In the forest, harassed by mosquitoes.

In the dining room, under a blanket.


From the passenger side.

While donating plasma.

In the car wash.

And back in the forest again... this time getting rained on...

...while keeping an eye out for wolves.
