Interview with Suilan Lee

Suilan, what inspires you to get out of bed each day and to keep writing?
One very loud alarm clock gets my eyes open in the morning. ^_^. My inspiration not to shut it off and crawl back to bed is being answerable to the people I care about. I want to show I've done something at the end of the day, no matter how small it is. So, I get up and do that something. When it comes to writing, I've had to create goals in order to keep up with it. I make it a point to meet these goals, and if I fail, I keep working harder until that goal is met.
What do you read for pleasure?
Magazines, travel blogs, novels by my seniors in the m/m genre, and regular romance novels too.
What do your fans mean to you?
The greatest joy! There is nothing more awesome than getting a message from a fan on my lowest day. It brings me up like nothing else! Fans are the most precious people to me.
Suilan, why do you write M/M Romance? Do you write other genres?
I started out reading M/M romance before I wrote in the genre. One day, I sat down to write, and the story that came out was M/M romance, so I went with it. I haven't found a reason to stop writing it. I do write other genres as well, but not as much. On a more in-depth note, I do it for someone close to me. So that he can get to see characters he can relate to, finding happiness, love and happy endings.
