It seems even when I'm not writing, I'm writing. There are always little ideas that pop into my head, or research to be completed.
Writing is something I do to de-stress and relax, which is odd since it's also work.
I suspect I'm a closet workaholic.
No matter, the point is I like to write.
I also like to have a good cup of coffee (or three) while I'm doing my writing
Yes, I'm a whole bean girl! I love flavored coffee and I have a collection of grinders, one that looks similar to this one! Mostly it just sits on a shelf in my kitchen looking pretty, but it really does serve a purpose.
If my power goes out, I'm still having my freshly ground bean cup of coffee! I use a French press to do the actual brewing.
A friend of mine sends me coffee for Christmas and my birthday from a place called Berres Brothers. Awesome coffee. My current favorites are the Highlander Grog and Black Velvet. They are to die for!
Like most writers I use my likes and dislikes with my characters. One aspect that's bled into almost every book and is a staple in two of my series is love of coffee. I don't even do it on purpose, it just happens!
In the very first Sentries book, Marked Yours, Nick is introduced to coffee for the first time. His love of a good cup is something woven through the entire series. Nick uses a hand grinder much like mine.
My vampire, Jonas Forge, has sniffed out his java (and many bad guys) through two series now, The Sleepless City and The Vampire Guard.
Like me both these guys enjoy coffee with a bit of chocolate added and they like it strong. Not black, I can't do black, so cream and sugar for them too!
