Dani Couture for DESK SPACE
DESK SPACE Who (a witty one-liner or a bio)?
DANI COUTURE Writer, small space expert, and animal effigist.
DS When did you start writing, publish your first book (or when are you publishing your next)?
DC I started writing in the backseat of my parent's pickup truck. As a military family, we spent many hours on the road, so I had a lot of time to read. The more I read, the more I wanted to write. My first book, "Good Meat," was published by Pedlar Press in 2006, and I have a second collection of poetry, "The Handbook," forthcoming from Pedlar.
DS Where do you write (at your desk/outside/in bed)?
DC I write on my couch, which is really a loveseat, with my feet up on the coffee table.
DS Why do you work where you do?
DC Even though I live in a bachelor apartment that doesn't have enough room for a desk, I prefer to write at home. I've discovered creative ways to store my books and papers, and I have a large bank of south-facing windows that makes all the difference.
DS What are you working on now?
DC I'm working on a novel, tentatively titled "Black Bear on Water."
