Susan Parker Rosen started to write when in a dream an Aunt who she missed dearly, came to her in a dream and told her to, "Start with a blank piece of paper." She was 60 years of age and unemployed, she had time to devote to a Novel and "The Bastard Child." was born after 3 years.
She lives with her husband in Pocomoke City Md in a 100+ year old home that is only 30 minutes from Chicoteague Va. The location is perfect setting for writing and she is currently working on another project that will be set in her area. "It's very quiet and charming in our small town and the people are exceptional. The river is only 2 blocks away and my husband Tim and I enjoy walking our two dogs to the River Park together."
Describe your desk
Since I struggle with a pain disease known as Fibromyalgia our king sized bed is my desk; as strange as that may sound! The set-up works since it causes me the least amount of pain, in fact, the relaxation helps me reach out to my creative self. Located on the muted green floral quilt is my Iphone as well as an Ipad (for when I market and promote my work). When I have a flare you can find me there, writing on my Acer Notebook, the same one I used to start writing "The Bastard Child" in 2010. Oh, and I should mention, Netflix is turned on the flat screen, and my two doggies join me at the foot of the bed.
What are you working on next?
I'm in the midst of two projects. One is a Short Story that is part of the Izzy Series. This story takes place in Cape May NJ and has a mix of humor and action. One of my Izzy Series Stories is now available on Smashwords, "Missing on Hatteras Island." This new eBook should be available on Smashwords by September 2017. The second project is putting together a collaboration of short stories written by 100 people whom struggle with Fibromyalgia. Since people are still signing up to write I cannot estimate the release date of this eBook.
This Izzy Short Story is jammed packed with page turning surprises! Isabella and her husband Kent take their daughter, Little Izzy, and their dog, Ethel the Pug on a weeks vacation to Hatteras Island in the Outer Banks of NC.The very first day of the trip a mishap strikes that leaves the rest of the family completely devastated. A touch of humor and tears brings together a quick fun read.
