The Perfect Reading Spot - Jean Brashear
Where do I like to write? A whole 'nother question, mostly answered by these few words: Not. At. My. Desk.
There's just one eensy problem: Sister is, um, dead. But Sister's psychic promised that if Pea would head toward New Mexico, she'd find signs leading her to the body in which Sister's soul was reincarnated.
Pea travels the back roads of Texas and, despite her vow to stay on task, begins picking up stray souls: a pregnant teen girl, a hungry kitten, and a sexy con man on the run from his past. Toss in feuding old ladies who vie to teach Pea swordplay and the art of frying okra, and Pea has her hands full. A recent review called it "Eudora Welty meets Sue Monk Kidd and they lunch with Fannie Flagg."
What's your favorite reading spot? Do you have more than one? And if you write, where do you do that?
