When we first bought this house eighteen years ago, the room that's now my office was my daughter's bedroom. These days, she owns her own home in another city. Her old bedroom was briefly an exercise room, then a guest bedroom, and now it's my office.
As you can see, I didn't tidy up. I wanted you to see it in it's normal and natural state (messy!)
I have books - not as many as I used to before I got my Kindle. I gave away hundreds of them, boxes and bags. I kept all the hard covers and the paperbacks I view as "keepers".
As you can also see, I collect stuffed dogs. Every time I go on a trip, I try to bring home one. I love to look for breeds that I don't have.
Note the purple dragon. It's a dog toy, but I love it as it's sort of my muse (and my one and only tattoo!)
My real life Mini Schnauzer Mitchell Thomas also is always where I am, so he's my writing companion.
And in the end, this is what I face everyday - my computer monitor. I write my books here, check email here, and all my writing business is conducted here.
I love my office. It's the one room in my home that's entirely mine!
Now it's your turn. What's your office like? Anyone who responds will be put into a random drawing for a free copy of one of Karen's backlist books - winner's choice.
