By Liza O’Connor
Welcome to Liza O’Connor’s real writing cave.
It has lights, heat, air-conditioning, a ceiling fan, a plush recliner with a heating pad and a pillow. I also have an electric blanket as well. I confiscated (with her permission) my neighbor’s very tall desk. It holds my two PCs and some reference books. One PC holds Audible and David, my robot. Both Audible and David can read me books aloud, so I don’t have to worsen my eyesight more than necessary. David has more specific needs than Audible. He can only read PDFs and word docs. I use him to locate missing & wrong words, echoes, misspellings, and other disasters in my books. He’s not perfect, and he is certainly not a replacement for an editor, but he has his uses, both before and after an editor has gone through my story.
My main PC is google centric. Every page I commonly use while writing comes up automatically when I start the computer. The PC is always trying to get me to add new stuff, but I refuse. 22 pages open at the same time is just about all the PC and I can deal with.
I also have a third computer, but that one is in my original office. The desktop computer is in charge of making book covers. This rooms is half the size of my current writing den. The room is basically my desk, my pc, a shredder, two bookshelves and a day bed. But you get a great view of my solarium, presently crowded with plants that begged me not to let them die in the cold.
I like to be weird, so my walls in my current writing room are green. I’ve a sofa for my therapist bear (Sometimes I need a hug) and another longer sofa where sometimes I detox after work and watch TV. It has the softest throw blanket that has ever existed. I love to pet that blanket.
That’s probably more than you ever wished to know—am I right? I have a tendency to share too much.

With Earth destined for a new ice-age, seven scientists and twenty-two brilliant teenagers are gathered in a compound deep within a mountain. There they struggle to come together as a group and complete the projects needed for their survival in the inhospitable environment of Titan, one of Saturn’s moons. However, certain factions on Earth have no intention of letting Project Einstein succeed. Keeping the group alive and productive is the hardest task Colonel Lancaster and his soldiers have ever had, but they are determined to succeed no matter how well the saboteurs have planned.
