Most of the time I adore working from home (the convenience, the lack of humans, the pjs etc), but I have to admit, I often fantasize about a shared workspace with fellow creatives. Just not sure I can trust myself not to talk all day. Oh well, maybe I'll do it after 20 years, like Jane Green ...

Once upon a time I dreamed of publishing a book. One book. Now, I've published four and they occasionally appear on lists like these. Thanks again to @ibooks for making me pause and appreciate how far I've come, and what a dream and a privilege it all is.

Day 2 of #mywritinglife ... Current WIP. In fact my current WIP is copyedits for The Family Next Door (my 2018 release), but as soon as I'm finished those, I'll be straight back to working on my new book, The Mother In Law. I'm not gonna lie, I am SO EXCITED about this book | 🤓 📖 | It's ALL I want to be working on. Every time I tell someone the title, they bail me up and tell me their MIL stories (which I really appreciate). There is just something so interesting about the dynamic of this relationship and I can't wait to explore it ... from both sides, of course. Oh, and someone will die, obvs 🙄.⠀
