My daily planner

My planner is one of those simple ring journals you can pick up from any store like Target or Walmart. I prefer lined paper, but they come in plain white. I’m an obsessive note-taker and fill pages to the margins with ideas for my novel characters. These notes include to do lists, rough sketches, and any idea that pops into my head for my books in progress. I usually go through one planner every month. If you don’t have a stack of these ring journals, I sure recommend you get two and try it–one to keep on your kitchen counter and one for your car! You’ll see it’s easier than speaking into an iPhone and you’ll stay amazingly organized!

I save all of my notebooks for future projects!

I'm proud to say I'm a native Californian. I grew up in the orange groves of Riverside in Southern California, spent my middle years in Concord, California, and now reside in an off-the-beaten-path rural area called Kneeland, California. Kneeland is special because of the beautiful redwood forests that turn into gorgeous grasslands at higher elevations. I'll include some pics later on. The California Redwoods are a beautiful place to vacation if you are a lover of the outdoors! My husband, Carlos, and I live on a small ranch in this far-flung secluded hamlet surrounded by Redwood forests and their resident wild creatures. As you might imagine, this isolated lifestyle lends itself well to fiction-writing! My fertile imagination runs amok against backdrops of California's famous mountains, deserts, beaches, and the amazing bounty and variety of outdoor activities people gravitate to in the Golden State. When I'm not writing, I spend my time walking and hiking, enjoying nature with Carlos and our two dogs.
