My Favorite Thing To Do When Not Writing

Tanya Anne “Emerald” Crosby

There’s no better reason to walk away from work than time with family and friends, and I try to do this as much as possible. Once I send The King’s Favorite off to my editor (my newest historical romance, due to be released June 26th 2018), it’s off to Austin I go to spend time with friends, and then to Charleston, to witness my firstborn child’s wedding vows to his lovely fiancé, Lauren. Yeah for weddings!

Of course, we’ve had a super long winter in the far reaching north, and we’re still digging our way out of snow banks, but I’m very much looking forward to sailing, gardening and dinner with friends. For those of you who’ve spent time with me on Facebook, you know how much I adore gardening and how much it relaxes me.

Some of my favorite lovelies to grow are rare peonies (pictured), heirloom roses, coneflowers, irises and tulips. On the other end of the property, my husband Scott grows some of my other favorite garden denizens, including tomatoes, peppers and eggplant. And while we started off at opposite ends, our gardens are now merging in a beautiful way, and we really enjoy spending time in the garden at the end of the day, or eating breakfast surrounded by tomatoes.

Of course, my absolute favorite thing to do is spend time with my grandchildren, and I don’t get to do this nearly enough. They’re growing so fast! So Scott and I compensate by spending as much as time as possible with our OTHER babies—two Labradors and two cats. On any given day, you can find both dogs at my feet and Jinx sitting next to me in the chair. And when he’s ready for a break, he puts his hand on my keyboard.
