Guest Post & Giveaway: A Mathematical State of Grace by Cathy McGough

Original Title: A Mathematical State of Grace
Series: Book #1
Author: Cathy McGough
Publisher: Stratford Living
Release Date: February 14, 2015
Genre: Science Fiction

The laws of the Universe are ordered and finite. Every mathematical equation has one perfect solution. Jocks lead the high school pack, and nerdy girls go unnoticed. 

But what would happen if one day, everything changed? 

In one fateful moment, sixteen-year old mathematical prodigy Grace Greenway and Vincente Marino, all-around high school athlete, are unexpectedly thrown together. From that moment on, Grace and Vincente are forced to navigate a strange and wonderful new world together, quickly learning that they must depend on each other if they want to survive. 

Now, imagine a world where the rules of the ordered Universe no longer apply, and the line between reality and fiction becomes blurred beyond all reason. 

Imagine living in A Mathematical State of Grace.

- Guest Post by Cathy McGough

I have always dreamed of having a room of my own to write in. I have my window in front of me, streaming in natural light and I have two screens to play with – which is really helpful when researching and editing. It also helps me to be super duper organised.

My chair is comfortable enough – although sometimes I wish it had arms to hold me – especially when something devastating happens to one of my characters…or when one I thought was a good character suddenly turns into a baddie. My desk looks pretty tidy here but trust me – it doesn’t always look this way.

Here you can see the reason I bought this desk, because it has a map of the world on its surface. It is inspiring to have the world just under my fingertips.

Still, I tend to pick up my laptop and travel with it – walking from place to place, listening to the world happening in real time – rather than staying inside. And because I live in such a beautiful city called Stratford, Ontario, Canada – inspiration is just a short walk away from where I live and nothing opens up the heart and mind more than being surrounded by beauty and nature.

A table can be created from nature – even when all of the snow hasn’t yet melted.

And below, I find a seat at The Art Gallery of Stratford. I took lessons here on Saturday mornings when I was a little girl. Returning here allows the child in me to see through my eyes.

Here now in Centennial Park, sitting on the famous bridge to nowhere. The structure remains, but when I was a little girl the Canadian National Railway ran trains under this very bridge. Shhhh, a secret is about to be told – it is here that I smoked my first cigarette. Now, there is a garden underneath and it is a lovely place to sit and write and contemplate.

Which only goes to show -
Wherever my laptop is – that’s my home.

I would be remiss if I did not introduce you to Rosie…
