Question (Emily Brown): Is there a special place or time when you like to write?
Answer (Kate Klise): I live on forty acres in the Missouri Ozarks in an old farmhouse I bought when I dropped out of graduate school. It's always quiet, but mornings are especially still and lovely. Most writers like to work in the morning hours before the cranky editor inside us wakes up. We all have an inner Sister Jan who we need to silence when we're writing first drafts and trying to make sense out of chaos.
