Interview with Susan
I’m so happy to have you here on my blog, Susan. You’re a long time author, so to start us off, share something your readers wouldn’t know about you.
I recently celebrated the 25th anniversary of the day I had a major stroke. It was very scary, and for two days I couldn’t read or write. Praise God, I recovered with no residual effects and have been able to produce many books since then.
Wow! That is scary! Thank the Lord He gave back your ability to write your books. And speaking of books… What was your favorite book when you were a kid? Did it play any part in your writing style today?
I’ve always loved books. One that helped me learn to read was Crybaby Calf. My older sisters read it to me so many times, I memorized it and “read” it myself. Then I started picking out which printed words said what. I could read before I went to school, and then I loved chapter books like Clarence the TV Dog and Miss Pickerel Goes to Mars.
I’ve never read those, but they sound great! Since you’re not a kid anymore, what book is currently on your bedside table?
A whole stack, including books by Robin Lee Hatcher, Heather Greer, Robert Whitlow, Alexander McCall Smith, and Grace Hitchcock.
So many talented authors! What has been your favorite part of the publishing journey?
Getting to know readers and other writers. When I started writing fiction, I only knew one other person who’d published a novel. I felt like a real oddball. Over the past fifteen years or so, I’ve met so many wonderful people and made many new friends who “get it.”
That’s wonderful! If you could travel anywhere or any when for research, where/when would you go?
I’ve always wanted to visit Switzerland. I haven’t thought about doing a book set there, but I’m sure a story would present itself.
I’ve actually been to Switzerland, and it’s an inspiring location. I’m sure you would come up with a brilliant idea for a story. And speaking of stories, your new book, Cliffhanger, releases tomorrow, February 1st! Would you share with us something about the book that isn’t in the blurb?
I had the idea for Cliffhanger for several years before I actually wrote the story. Picking the famous fictional character names for the rooms at the inn was challenging, but lots of fun. I have a long list of possibilities for when and if the owners decide to redecorate a room or expand and add a few more.
Very cool! I love the idea of the rooms named after fictional celebrities! We’re all excited about your 100th book coming out, so for those who’d like to check it out, where can readers find out more about you and your books?

Before we finish the interview, do you have any current or upcoming projects you’d like to tell us about?
My next release is Persian Blue Puzzle, the third book in my True Blue Mysteries (it comes out April 22). But I’m currently writing The Sister’s Search, book 3 in my Homeward Trails series. It’s coming out in July. This book will close out the story of Grandmother Rose’s long wait to find her three grandchildren, who were abandoned by their father and adopted into very different homes when they were small.
Thanks for sharing, Susan, and God’s blessing for your 100th book release!
