Interview with Suse Wilcox

When did you first start writing?
I knew that I wanted to write since junior high school. However, I have always been pragmatic in my approach to life and pursued a career in finance/management. That choice didn't permit a substantial amount of time to pursue writing until now.
What's the story behind your latest book?
My hope is to inspire children and young adults to read stories that are entertaining but have subtle and overt messages regarding life, personal choices, and faith.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I enjoy autonomy and challenges.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords has made the publishing process amazingly straightforward and manageable. They provide access to all necessary tools from beginning to end.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy is reaching out to youth with a message of hope and purpose.
What do your fans mean to you?
Fans provide inspiration to keep writing.
What are you working on next?
A book about two young girls who experience adventure and challenges during summer break.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I enjoy time with my husband and two sons. I like to be physically active and do so by running, biking, swimming, etc. I enjoy reading.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I seek to read books that are nonficton. Topics that I enjoy include history, science, and apologetics. However, I write books that are fiction.
What is your writing process?
I write down ideas constantly. I keep a journal of ideas and pursue those that provide the best storyline.
