Cara Bristol, Come Into My Lair.... #WritingPlace
It’s hard to believe my husband and I once shared not only an office, but also a computer! My first book was published in 2009, but it wasn’t until we built our current house in 2012 that we each got an office—and I bought my own computer.
I love having my own space dedicated to writing because I spend a lot of time in my office. I pretty much write seven days a week.
The L-shaped mission style desk was my first big purchase from book royalties. I don’t accumulate piles of papers or messes, but by the end of the day, everything I’ve used—notebooks, pens, planners, the dictionary, my thesaurus, file folders—is spread out over the desk. I tidy up at least once every couple of days.
Before becoming an author, I worked in corporate public relations in buildings where I never had a window. In the winter, I never saw sun or daylight. I’d go to work before it got light, and would leave after sunset. Having a window in my home office is really nice. My office overlooks our front yard and the street. I see lots of squirrels, rabbits and deer. It can get distracting, especially when the squirrels are watching me!
Hannah, my cat, sleeps on her scratch post, which is next to my desk. About half my time is spent writing or editing new books and the other half is spent on promotion: blogging, posting on social media, producing my newsletter, running contests and giveaways, etc. Last year, I wrote/published four books totaling more than 200,000 words, and re-released four backlisted ”out-of-print” books. I also wrote 250 blogs. Lol. I think if I wasn’t an author, I’d be a blogger—I’m halfway there already. :)

Billionaire Carter Aymes, director of Cyber Operations, a covert cyborg force, devotes his wealth and life to saving others, rescuing hostages and other victims from desperate situations. His ultimate mission is to hunt down and eliminate Lamani, the alien terrorist mastermind, before he conquers the galaxy.
When Carter hires Beth O’Shea, a vulnerable but courageous woman with connections to his past, their attraction is immediate and strong, but he knows getting involved with her is a bad idea. He’s her boss, and he has way too many classified projects to protect to risk letting someone get close.
Rejected by the progenitors who cloned her, Beth is determined to live a normal human life, beginning by getting an ordinary job with a security firm. But, from the start, she questions the extraordinary secrecy surrounding the organization. She can’t help but wonder about the tall, muscled, larger-than-life director who gave her a chance when she desperately needed one. Could he ever be romantically interested in a woman like her, in a clone?
When Beth is attacked, they both realize how short and tenuous life is, and their mutual attraction becomes too powerful to resist.
As their relationship heats up, so does the urgency to capture Lamani before he can unleash a stealth weapon at a critical planetary Summit meeting. With time running out, Carter discovers that stopping Lamani may require sacrificing Beth’s life.
Will Carter be able to rescue her, or will his new love be the one person he can’t save?
