My Liquid Inspiration

So, not entirely shocking, I inhale coffee and tea while I write, and edit, and…well do anything. Really, I have a hard time getting started in the morning without a cup of either.

However, I’ve reached such a deep dependency, that I’ve sat down and blanked on a page until I took my first sip. Thankfully, I have an electric kettle and a coffee pot, so I’m rarely without.  Besides, I have a small business blending tea, so if I run out of tea, I’ve got bigger problems.

I figured I’d share my love for tea and coffee by way of these lovely quotes!

“I say let the world go to hell, but I should always have my tea.”

–Fyodor Dostoyevsky

“For I have known them all already, known them all—
Have known the evenings, mornings, afternoons,
I have measured out my life with coffee spoons.”

–T.S. Eliot

“Time for you and time for me,
And time yet for a hundred indecisions,
And for a hundred visions and revisions,
Before the taking of a toast and tea.”

–T.S. Eliot

“Sometimes life is merely a matter of coffee and whatever intimacy a cup of coffee affords.”

–Richard Brautigan

“Honestly, if you’re given the choice between Armageddon or tea, you don’t say ‘what kind of tea?”

–Neil Gaiman



I split my time writing and working my day job as a massage therapist. If it’s a creative pursuit though, chances are I’ve dabbled in it. Hell, I’ve played around with soapmaking, beer brewing, cupcake baking, tea blending and everything else under the midday sun. At the end of the day, my constant is always reading, writing and editing. I’m an Aries-Taurus cusp–which to any astrology buffs should tell you plenty. I hit the East Coast convention circuit pretty hard and chances are, you can find me vending for Solstice Brews while simultaneously promoting my books.
