Speaking of Kitty, he enjoys the sunroom as well. In the afternoon, I’ll find him sleeping in the sunshine beaming in through the windows. Also his toys and cat tree are in there and we frequently play. Yes, his name is Kitty. My children named him Valek after a character in my books (the Study series). Valek is an assassin and all around tough guy, so a perfect name for a black cat that is also known as “the bug assassin” (he’s really good at catching flies). However, our big black tom cat only responds to Kitty. Sigh.
My sunroom looks out over my backyard and the farm fields beyond. Wheat is this summer’s crop. Other years it’s been corn or soybeans. If it’s not raining, I’m treated to a beautiful sunset. And in the fall, I’ll watch the combine drive through and harvest the crop. One of these days, I’m going to ask to drive the combine. That makes my husband—who grew up on a farm—laugh. I think I can handle a combine. I’ve also watched thunderstorms come rolling in through those windows.
My sunroom, while cozy, also triggers my creativity. And I think most authors have a room or place in their house that also inspires them. Thanks for letting me share my favorite place with you!
