Welcome Susan Edwards


Native American/Western romance writer Susan Edwards is the author of the popular  “White” Series.  She was nomination for Romantic Times Career Achievement Award for Western Historical and Reviewer’s Choice Best Book Award.   She is very pleased to be able to offer to her readers her series in Digital Format.  Susan is working on an idea for a new White book, a reunion of characters.  She is also working on developing a new series, one that she is very excited about.  Check her website for current news.
 


Susan lives in Central California with her husband and a houseful of cats, including two rescue kittens who stole her heart.  Recently, her Aussie/Border collie dog died of cancer.  She now has two adorable Chiweenie pups.  The 4 youngsters in the pet department make her smile, laugh and sometimes groan each and every day. 



Her other passions include gardening.  Through her love of all things Native American, she has designed a 26 foot Medicine Wheel Garden.  It is a big project but one that she loves.  You can follow her progress on her website (coming soon).  Susan also loves to join her husband for hikes in the hills when it isn’t too hot outside and also biking.

CAT:  How often to you get lost in a story?
SUSAN:  Not as often as before I became a writer.  Once in a while it happens.  Mostly I read in short bits of time with no time to just sit and devour a book.

CAT:  What’s your favorite kind of story to get lost in?
SUSAN:  I love magical and paranormal stories.  I want to get lost in a world different than my own but the story has to have characters that draw me in and make me feel welcome.

CAT:  What’s the first book you remember reading?
SUSAN:  Heidi, Boxcar children, Nancy Drew if we go back though I remember earlier books as well.  For romances, the sweet Harlequins.  By the bagful!

CAT:  What’s your favorite fairy tale?
SUSAN:  Cinderella of course. 

CAT:  Is there a playlist you’d recommend for reading your latest release?
SUSAN:  Native American Music (but not just flutes).  Need the voices and other instruments and of course, drums.  Some of the New Age stuff works too.

CAT:  Is writing or story-telling easier for you?
SUSAN:  Definitely the story-telling!  Writing is darn, hard work!

CAT:  Tea or Coffee? And how do you take it?
SUSAN:  Both.  Tea—2 spenda’s.  Love it with milk English style as well when the occasion calls for it.  Coffee—cream & spelenda.  Starbucks style even better.

CAT:  What’s something you’d like to tell your fans?
SUSAN:  Never give up with your dreams.  Be stubborn, determined and when needed, be the “squeaky wheel” but in a nice way of course.

CAT’S GOTTA ASK
If you were a t-shirt, what color would you be and why?

SUSAN’S GOTTA ANSWER
If I was a t-shirt, I’d be a light but not pale blue.  A warm blue that would make people feel calm and relaxed.

GOT A QUESTION YOU’D LIKE TO ASK YOUR FANS?
I’m considering the idea of doing a reunion book.  Who would you like to see there and why?  What past characters would you like to see more of?

Susan is offering a copy of White Dawn to one commenter.

  1. Hi Susan! Thanks for joining us today. I have some wonderful music that I bought for a local Native American while in Santa Fe that I listen to when I write. It's eerie flute music. Very peaceful, but at the same time has a magical quality.

    I was fascinated by your Medicine Wheel garden. I can't wait to see the progress when you post on your website.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  5. Hi Susan, your "White" series reminds me of a book I recently read. It was a historical romance set in the Wild West and I really enjoyed them. The series is new to me so I haven't met your characters yet but in general I love second chance and reunion stories, whether the characters are new to me are were secondary in another story. Thank you for the interview.
