Author Quick Chat with Tea Cooper

Hi, readers! I’m excited to have “down-under” author Tea Cooper here today for a quick chat. Here’s the question I posed to Tea:

What does your writing area look like? 

Talented author that she is, she knows the principle of  “Show, don’t tell” … so, here’s her answer:

Here’s my writing space. Isn’t it lovely?


But don’t look at the rest of the house, because I sprawl everywhere.

All over the shelves…

Onto the kitchen benches…

Tea 3

Into the sunshine…

 And my timeline has taken over the dining room table!

What does my writing area look like …? More like an invasion or an annexation really!!

What’s your favorite space? Authors, where do you write? Readers, do you have a special place to curl up with your book..or Nook…or Kindle…?

TeaCooperTéa Cooper lives in a stone cottage on one hundred acres of bushland, in the Hunter Valley. When she isn’t writing, Téa can be found haunting the local museum or chatting to the locals, who provide her with a never-ending source of inspiration. The settings for her stories range from the glittering beachside city of Sydney to small country towns and the harsh outback.



Check out Tea’s latest release: Lily’s Leap

From Escape’s Queen of Australian historical romance comes a story about a privileged member of Australian’s squattocracy, a bushranger, and a very special horse.

Born into the rough, but privileged society of the Australian colonial landowners, Lilibeth Dungarven finds herself married, widowed, and, much to her distress, back under her father’s thumb, all before her twenty-first birthday. Determined not to forgo her dream of breeding the perfect racehorse, Lilibeth ignores propriety and sets out to restore the family’s flagging fortunes.

When Captain Tom and his mismatched band of bushrangers stumble across a mob of the best horses they’ve ever seen, and the daughter of the famed Dungarven horse stud, they know their fortunes have changed. Their catch is worth a king’s ransom. All they have to do is hold her for seven days. How hard can it be to control the pampered daughter of a colonial upstart?

  1. Such cool places! I write in our small bedroom which is also my office, and I don’t let it spill to the rest of the house because it’s always in danger of being thrown away, sat on by the cats, gnawed on by the dogs or painted over by my visiting niece. 😉

    • I try to avoid “spill-over” too, as much as possible. I have problems enough keeping my projects organized within the confines of a single room. If I got any more scattered out, I’d be totally lost. On occasion, I do scribble down notes in my notebook if I’m away from the computer, but then I carry it right back here to MLWR (my little writing room) to work on it.

    • My apologies, Tea… I just noticed I had “check out Vicki’s latest release”… DUH! It was one of those days all days. I use previous posts as templates each time I do an author quick chat. Sometimes I miss making changes. I have it corrected now. So sorry for overlooking that earlier!

  2. I have a writing room but it isn’t as well-organized as yours! Lately I’ve been taking my laptop to other parts of the house, just as you do. Seems like a change of location sometimes inspires ideas! By the way, LILY’S LEAP sounds like a terrific story.

  3. Thanks, Sandra. I’m thrilled you like the look of LILY’S LEAP! It holds a special place in my heart because a lot of the action takes place in my backyard! And on the subject of location … I find moving around does inspire ideas. I’m too nosy to work in the coffee shop so it is a good compromise!

Let's Chat! Please share your thoughts.
