This is Gloria Oliver’s workspace. I’ll let her speak for herself:
Well, MD Benoit brought up this interesting proposition about Zumaya Authors sharing our workspaces with the world so they could see where our ideas bore fruit. I thought “Hey, that would be like way cool!” but first I would need to CLEAN my work space! As a couple of weeks went by and the cleaning of the area didn’t seem to be happening, I figured I needed to take steps. So in a moment of utter brilliance I thought “You know, if I cleaned my work space for the photo, then it truly wouldn’t BE my work space then would it? So why not actually take a pic of the disaster area I work in as it stands?” So here you are. My work space in all its cluttered glory. And it changes too! A bit here and there migrates, disappears, or gets added to almost every week. 😛 (Current clutter includes – CDs for promo disks, To Do list, charging e-book machine, Japanese translated manga, bottle of water, notebooks, and who knows what else!)
Honestly though, this isn’t my only work place. Writing happens in several locations for me. I have a couch where I sometimes do editing work on the laptop. My desk at work where I write before the day starts. Even the small break room at the office where I type away on the laptop at lunch. Even my car, where a small notebook will drink down my fervent thoughts at a stop light for later perusal. 😛 I am all over the place. lol.
Now for some obligatory info! I’ve been with Zumaya since about 2001, my first book In the Service of Samurai (YA Japanese Fantasy) was published in 2002. Vassal of El was published in 2004, and Willing Sacrifice should be released in 2007. I am a Spec Fic writer, but all my novels so far have been in the Fantasy genre. I have several short stories in varied anthologies as well. If you want any more info on me and/or my works, drop on by http://www.gloriaoliver.com. See you there!
