Cathy Woodman is the author of the Talyton St George vet books. The next in the series, Country Loving, is released in August.
I tend to write whenever and wherever I can, including in the car and on the train, but when I’m at home I like to have my laptop, notes and books spread across the dining room table so it looks as if I’m working really hard. I have a study upstairs, but I don’t use it for writing because it’s a cold room and too isolated from the rest of the house, whereas the dining room is warm and handy for the kitchen – I need a constant supply of coffee and snacks when I’m writing! I tell myself that the caffeine and sugar are good for maintaining brain activity, although the latter isn’t terribly good for the waistline.
