Usually ideas pop when I’m busy doing something physical: gardening, barn chores, cleaning house.
How do you go about writing a book? Do you have any schedule, tricks or tips to share?
I have two middle schoolers, a day job, and lots of animals, so my life is very full. I have to schedule writing time, usually after dinner when the kids are doing homework and the day is slowing down.

I read almost anything, from thrillers to romance. Fantasy is my forever love. I have a lot of favorite authors, but Robin Hobb is my go-to.
