In the spirit of this great "Please allow me to reintroduce myself" blogfest I thought I would take a chance to introduce myself. My name is Jill and my “Little Nut Tree” came from a seed planted earlier this year. I am quite new to blogging, in comparison to many of you veterans, and it has been such fun to read your blogs and feel so warmly welcomed, (and constantly inspired).I am a wife and mom of two first, on novel number three, (all here-to-for unpublished) and usually I squeak in my hidden moments of writing with an excuse of having to check the laundry or find a book for my three year old. (Where has Mummy gone? Why—on the computer of course, Darlings.) I compose my little “golden pears” usually to the sweet sounds of my children wrestling—I mean dancing above me in the living room, and often I fear they will come tumbling through the ceiling, or, preferably, my three year old hangs on my leg and whines about playing a video game while I put the finishing touches on a query. Needless to say typos are my signature.
My favorite time to write is after all are snuggly tucked into bed, (husband included). I have been sufficiently primed with coffee after dinner so as to maximize my alertness-curve. I put on some Monteverdi, brew a pot of Chamomile and lose myself in Glastonbury, England, the setting of my new MG novel about –all things!, a time travelling young girl, dream-walking and the magical, mystery Tor.
