Don’t squish the cat! Sabine Priestley shows off her writing space #AuthorsInSpace #PetsInSpace

By Sabine Priestley

Here’s a look inside my world and were the magic happens. This is my desk. I like the minimal distractions afforded by facing a wall of inspiration.

I have a VeriDesk which I love. One must be careful, however, not to squish the cat when putting it down.

My space isn’t an office so much as a cave off my kitchen/dining area.


When I do, feel like a view (but don’t feel like going to Starbucks or some other venue) I frequently move over to my kitchen table with my Roost laptop stand. That thing is a neck saver. This was my setup while keeping an eye on hurricane Emily. 

Sabine Priestly bio

Sabine grew up consuming Science Fiction, Fantasy and Romance novels (there was a brief bodice ripper period, but we won’t go into that).

She wanted to be an astronaut and travel the stars. She ended up an Electrical Engineer and Cultural Anthropologist. She’s a geek with heart.

Seriously disappointed we’ve yet to establish so much as a moon base, she’s encouraged by the recent developments by superstars such as Elon Musk, Sir Richard Branson and Jeff Bezos, among others.

She’s a travel addict, beach-loving, stargazing disruptor. Her heroines are kickass and her stories action packed.

Sabine is the author of Sensate, a novella in the Alien Attachment series in Embrace the Romance: Pets in Space 2.

Sensate Description

Marco Dar’s position as an Earth Protector means he spends an incredible amount of time alone in space. His only company is with the talkative com unit. It isn’t until he stops at the Galaxy Spinner restaurant that he discovers his com has become sentient – and it wants a physical form!

Dr. Zara Mancini hasn’t seen Marco Dar in over eleven years. As far as she is concerned, that still isn’t long enough. When Marco approaches her with an unusual request, she is torn between her fascination with the project, and wanting to leave him eating her space dust.

Marco is quickly falling all over again for Zara’s beautiful smile and gorgeous lips. Young and foolish, he sabotaged their relationship years ago. Now he has a second chance. Can he convince Zara to help his AI, and prove to her that he is a different man?

  1. Thanks for having me over! I’m going to let Stella know she’s famous now 😉

  2. Oh, I like the idea of a VeriDesk. Thanks for the peek into your office! 🙂

  3. I’m not sure I could write standing up, but love the office! Can’t wait for readers to get the chance to dive into your story! So much fun!

  4. Love your office space, Sabine!

    My former boss used to do all her work standing up. She swore it avoided neck and back pains. My current set-up wouldn’t allow it but on some of my more antsy days, I think I just might do better working on my feet.
