It’s Wednesday, which means it’s time for my weekly spotlight features, “What’s on your desk, Wednesday?”, where we take a visit to see what’s on somebody’s desk and have a good old nose around. (No kidding!) So without further ado, let’s meet today’s desk, I mean guest…
Welcome to where stories are created, from the desk of author Eileen Troemel
Sassy Brit : Tell us about your writing routine:
Routine is something I don’t have typically. I write when the words flow. When I’m writing, I’m typically in my recliner with all but one light off and classical music playing. Often my daughter’s cat is on my feet so I try not to disturb her. I write until the words stop – or if I’m interrupted.
On more than one occasion I have forgotten to sleep, eat, or visit the bathroom. Who has time for that? I mean, I’m writing.
But I do have a day job. This means there’s an alarm which tells me it’s time to stop writing. Honestly, it annoys me and I often write for an hour longer. Sleep isn’t really necessary is it? I do make an effort to stop writing at midnight.

SB : Three words to describe your desk?
SB: Where can we find out more about you?
