Got Cats?

As I’ve been delving into the world of Indie Authors, via blogs, Facebook, Twitter, and Google +, I’ve noticed that many have more than one gift for the arts. Also, it seems that many are avid cat owners.

So to my fellow “Indies” I’d like to ask two questions…

  1. What other art forms are you good at?
  2. Do you have a cat?

I’ll go first. 1. I like to draw, faux paint, and play guitar and 2. I have two cats, Minnie and Phoenix.

Inspiring Surroundings

When I read the post on Jodie Llewellyn’s blog “Where is your Favorite Place to Write,” I immediately started thinking about the opening sequence of “Ray Bradbury Theater.”  In those images we saw Bradbury in his office surrounded by dolls, statuettes, knick knacks and such. Everyone needs an inspiring setting to write in, and I’m no different. My wife and I are huge Fantasy fans, so I painted our office like a ruin with an open sky and some medieval looking window frames. The planters are made to look unkempt and forgotten.  Enjoy and feel free to leave a comment.
