We must walk past our kitchen table a couple dozen times a day. For the past few months, we’ve kept a poetry basket centered there. In the basket are books of poetry, books on writing poetry, paper pads, pens and pencils. Any time of the day, one or both of us (my husband is a writer also) may sit down and write something. We find we’re more productive that way. We also don’t lose little snippets of lines or pithy thoughts since a paper and pen are so accessible.

I was born in Colorado, but raised on a small homestead in Illinois. I served in the USAF right out of high school. After my stint in the military was finished, I returned home and had a horse stable. My first piece to be printed was a short children’s fiction, Jet’s Stormy Adventure, serialized in The Illinois Horse Network. It was a natural fit, given my business. Later, I attended University of Iowa's famed summer workshops and writing programs. Since that time, I have authored and co-authored numerous books. Several of my novels and short stories have won international awards and have appeared in multiple venues. View all posts by Wendy L. Koenig
