Our next WHERE I WRITE, in which our authors share their favorite writing spots, is from Terry Gaspard, author of DAUGHTERS OF DIVORCE (Sourcebooks, 2016)
“Although I have a comfortable home office with a coffee pot nearby, my favorite place to write is my local library. And today, as I sit in my preferred private room at the Portsmouth Free Public Library, I’m reminded of how I was teased by my three sisters and my father growing up about getting “dressed up” to go to the library on Saturday afternoon. My dad would say things like “There she goes again in her new outfit with her backpack full of books – she’s trying to escape our crazy house!” To this day, I’m happiest writing at my home away from home, where I hope to find solace once and for all!” – Terry Gaspard
