Susan Mac Nicol

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I’ve always written, even as a child. I got my first typewriter when I was nine. I think it was an Olympia, I don’t remember. I still have everything I wrote in a file, and I take it out sometimes and chuckle. I started writing commercially in 2012, when the inspiration for a story hit me, and I haven’t stopped.
What is the story behind your latest book?
There were two characters in my last series, the Men of London, who I thought deserved more written about them. Clay and Tate are featured in Feat of Clay - a story about an established couple trying to overcome the ravages of past traumas. They are investigators, Clay being ex-SAS and Tate a former drug squad cop, so I decided to let their investigative skills grow in a new series I’m writing. I can’t say too much about it, as I’m keeping the over-arcing theme of the stories under wraps until the first book is published. I promise it will be entertaining, a bit of an eye opener, a lot of fun and the stories will have the relationship building and development that I’ve become known for as a writer.
