Sean Robbins has written several short stories, poems, and screenplays, and Invisible Killer will be his debut novel.

Celebrate Spring and Avoid Allergies So You Can Keep Writing Your Book!

  1. Pollen counts are highest in the morning, so schedule outside writing later in the day.
  2. Avoid the outdoors on windy days when pollen can spread quickly.
  3. Use air conditioning, which filters pollen, but make sure to change filters regularly!
  4. Have to stay indoors to write? Consider investing in a HEPA air filter, found at medical supply stores and health catalogs.
  5. Avoid personal triggers so the time writing your book is more comfortable...and less maddening!
