A Peek Into My Office

As you’re reading this, I’m in Las Vegas at the Rio Hotel for the RT Booklover’s Convention. While I’m there, I thought you might like to get a peek into my office where I create these stories of mine. It’s full of inspiration. I’ll start with my desk. It used to be my husband’s but when he passed away, I moved my things over into it so I’d feel his presence.

Over my left shoulder is a bookcase that holds my research books. I have quite an extensive collection with books on old west saloons, ladies of the night, real lawmen and outlaws, plants, birds and some on the Texas Rangers just to mention a few.

Okay, that’s it. When I get back from the convention, I’ll post some pictures so you can see all the fun I had.



About LindaBroday

I'm a NY Times and USA Today bestselling author of western historical romance. I love stories of the old West and the people who once lived there. I haunt libraries and museums and can hang out in them for hours. To tell all the stories that are in my head would take a lifetime.

  1. I love your office. I feel privalige to have visited your office and beautiful home a few months ago. I’ll see you in Vegas.

    • Bless you, Tonya. I’m glad you enjoyed your visit here. Lord knows, my home is nothing fancy. What it is..is comfortable. I’m just down to earth and don’t claim to be more than I am.

      I loved seeing you and your husband in Vegas. That was so much fun. I’m glad you went the same time as I did.

  2. I love your office, I don’t have an office, I just use the kitchen table when I need to do bills and things like that. Then we have a room set up with mostly computers and my sewing machine in.

    • Hi Quilt Lady…..Thank you again for coming. I’m always happy to see you and have your support. You’re a dear sweet lady whom I call a friend. Your home sounds like mine. Comfortable and relaxed.

  3. It is interesting to see your creative space. I am looking forward to seeing your RT pictures!

    • Hi Cheryl C…….Thank you for coming while I was gone. I’m glad you enjoyed seeing my office. It’s just crammed full of things that inspire me. I love this room where I meet with my story people and they tell me what to write. LOL! It’s late and I haven’t downloaded my RT pictures, but I will on Petticoats and Pistols on Tuesday. Come and see what snapshots I captured.

  4. Slowly catching up on emails after the RT convention and what a treat to see your office and think about you writing your wonderful stories there while I type this. Thanks for making the convention such a delight, Linda!

    • Hi Jacqui…….I totally understand. It’s been hard catching up on emails and everything else this week. I think I’ve made a dent though. I’m glad you enjoyed a look at my office. It’s cluttered but I just love this space. It’s so full of inspiration. I really enjoyed meeting you and rooming with you. You’re even more warm and friendly in person. It was fun being there with you and Leigh. Next time I’ll try to act my age. Ha!
