Author Post, Den Patrick, Fantasy

Bookseller by Day, Novelist by Night. Which is to say, “a lie”. I’m a morning writer. Give me a cup of coffee, an eight o’clock start, and four uninterrupted hours of writing time. These days I cram in an hour and twenty minutes and then commute to the day job. I spend a lot of time at work asking people to swap shifts. Fortunately they’re very generous and good natured about it. I write on a battered MacBook Air. The … More
