Author bio:
Susan is an award winning, multi-published traditional and Indie
author. Her debut novel, Oops…We’re Married? was a Reader’s Choice nominee and
Holt Medallion Finalist. She describes herself first and foremost as a wife,
mother, sister, daughter, friend, dreamer, and novelist. An ardent student of
human nature who loves ancient history and myth, she didn’t grow up planning to
be a writer. That didn’t come until much later, after her first publication – a
little known article for Listen Magazine titled, Jessie’s Choice.
Other things you should know: Susan is the oldest child of a
military family. She’s traveled to many places over the years, but has never
been to Ireland, Paris, or Crete, an omission she hopes to someday correct. Her
favorite places in the world are New York City, Sedona (Arizona), Ouray (Colorado),
and Bath (England). And she believes the best things in life come in unexpected
packages. She writes whenever she can. In between she works as a Registered
Nurse, reads, gardens, takes lots of photos, travels whenever the opportunity
arises, and remodels her house. She LOVES dragons. Currently she’s working on
the next novel in her Dragonkind Chronicles, and dreaming up a new contemporary
romance.
Blurb about A Fool for Love:
When
a gypsy caravan-style truck breaks down at Martha’s curbside, the last thing
Zach Barret needs is an impulsive pixie rocking his boat. The more determined
he is to stay away from the free-spirited, green-eyed nomad, the more he finds
one kiss is not enough. Uncovering Alice York’s secrets in paintings of empty
swings and merry-go-rounds puts a new priority in the top spot on his short
list. But can he convince this stunning woman to park her truck permanently in
his drive?10:05 PM 5/7/2015
Excerpt from A Fool for Love:
Zach turned his attention to Alice. Unfortunately he hadn’t
put his best foot forward when he’d first encountered the foxy owner of the
Ford. “Where were you headed when your fuel pump gave out?”
“Longview, Washington. Got a job there.”
“What kind of job, if you don’t mind me asking?”
“I don’t mind.” She nestled her chin in the palm of her
hand, the sparkle in her eyes snapping with wry humor. “I work on classic
cars.”
Remembering his first sight of her, he asked, “You’re a
mechanic?”
“Does that surprise you?”
The subtle scent of vanilla coming from her side of the
table sent rational thought on a long hike in the opposite direction from
practical reason. It was a good thing he was a grown man who had the power to
stand up to steamy distractions.
“No.” The stranger his granddad and Lucy had invited to stay
in their basement, who said she slept in her truck when it broke down, could be
anything from a burglar to a most wanted criminal.
Stunning green eyes studied him. The punch to his gut wasn’t
that unpleasant.
Everything about the woman, the cut of her short, wispy,
strawberry-blonde hair, the flowery dress that snuggled close to curves he
couldn’t help noticing, the energetic wave of slender hands when she talked
with Lucy, all suggested an impulsive pixie who liked rocking the boat. He
didn’t like his boat rocked.

    Characters often find themselves in situations they aren't sure they can get themselves out of. When was the last time you found yourself in a situation that was hard to get out of and what did you do?

  2. Susan says:

    Good question, lol. My current day job – I've applied for a new job 🙂 That might not work, so usually what I do in difficult situations is pull up my big girl panties and face things head on. Sometimes if you talk softly and with a bit of humor, you can diffuse just about anything.

    Thank you everyone. Betty, traveling is one of the loves of my life. My mom passed on her nomad gene, lol. I get restless very quickly 🙂
