The best place to write

“My favorite place to write is at our 1960s Airstream trailer on the Central Coast of California. We bought it with some of my advance money and restored it in a “retro” style—think tiki and bamboo. Thanks to my saint of a husband and angelic in-laws, I’m able to get away periodically to this hideaway to write while they watch my son Dexter. I play Henry Mancini tunes and write for hours at a time—interrupted only by making pots of tea and counting jellyfish on the beach.”
 –Autumn Cornwell, YA author and world traveler 

I can't decide if I want to be Autumn Cornwell, or just be her friend. Maybe both.

(I recommend her book Carpe Diem. It delighted me this summer.)
