From the Desk of…

Cynthia “Ruby” Wright


CWdeckviewI began writing in 1975, and within two years, I had a contract with Ballantine Books and a home office of my own. For many years, I wrote my historical romances at my desk, surrounded by bookcases overflowing with research books.

Times have changed! I still have a home office, but I rarely sit down there to actually write. There are too many distractions! I keep my desktop computer in my office and shelves & stacks of research books, but when I actually get ready to write each day, I look for a place tucked away from the world and its distractions. Luckily, I now have a MacBook Air that I can easily transport to the spot that calls to me…

When it’s nice outside, I head to our deck, where I can baskIMG_8934 in the sunshine and get lost in the past. Here’s a view of that spot, taken last summer when the roses were in bloom. In the distance, you can see our little Airstream trailer. Now that it’s colder, the Airstream has become my “writing cave.” It’s cozy & warm inside, and I write in a little “booth” that is just the right size. I even have a microwave to make tea! I keep my current books & notes there, as well as my wooden “bleachers”, where I prop cards with plot & character notes on them. It’s my private time machine. :-)

IMG_8936I am currently writing THE SECRET OF LOVE, set in 1808 Cornwall and France, and featuring Lady Isabella Trevarre & Gabriel St. Briac (first seen in SMUGGLER’S MOON). I thought you might enjoy seeing some of the research books I’m using. Sometimes, discovering and reading these books is as much fun as writing!

Thanks for stopping by to visit my “office.” :-) If you’d like to know more about my books, I’d love to have you join me on my Facebook page! https://www.facebook.com/cynthiawrightauthor
