What’s on your writing desk, Janet Grunst?

 What's on your writing desk- (1)

I’m so happy to introduce Janet Grunst to you for our writing desk feature!

Janet lives in Williamsburg, in Southeastern Virginia, part of Virginia’s Historic Triangle (Jamestown, Williamsburg, and Yorktown) which nurtures her love of history and her writing. She shares life there with Ken, her husband and Scotty, a very entertaining Westie.

When Janet’s not writing, she is probably reading, cooking, or working in her garden. She also enjoys serving in her church and participating in Community Bible Study, where she has served in leadership for the past thirty years.

The porch is a perfect spot for reading and plotting her historical fiction stories. But the real work takes place in their family room where she spends hours researching and writing either for her stories or blog posts.

Janet My Writing Space -2

“Ken and I, both serious introverts, have an ideal set up. I write upstairs at one end of the house, and he builds guitars in his workshop downstairs at the other end of the house. Both of us enjoy our solitary pursuits as well as our time together.”

Janet just signed a contract with Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas to publish the first story of her Revolutionary War trilogy! Congratulations, Janet!

  1. Janet, it was nice to “visit” you 🙂 Karla, thanks for featuring Janet.

    Your spousal-home situation reminds me of mine: I’m on one end of the house and my husband restores pianos on the other end. LOL–and here I thought it was just us!

  2. Ahhh, Janet! Your writing space looks too neat! 🙂 I’d have to do some straightening before letting pictures of mine be posted. I just put up two wall shelves to hold books written by “friends”. My husband tries not to interrupt me when I’m at the computer. So he heads for the living room. I can’t work in another room or out in public–I get distracted by people-watching or the TV. Of course sitting in a public place is good for material on new characters!!!

    1. It is quite possible I tidied up before getting the picture. 🙂

      I also have to have quiet to work or I get distracted. The internet and the ease it offers in doing research is a a blessing as well as a big temptation.
      It seems all aspects of life require self-discipline. :0
