Suzy Stewart Dubot


An Anglo/American who has lived in France for over 30 years, she began writing as soon as she retired. She moved to London in 2012 and spent more than a year there with family. The spring of 2014, she returned to France, Her laptop has never had any trouble following her.

Smashwords Interview

If you were interviewing an author, what would be your first question?
Well, it certainly wouldn't be the standard 'Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?' I'd go for something outlandish like 'Did you ever cheat in English class?' or 'do you often look up the meanings of words?' I might ask how organised or chaotic they are when setting out an outline for their stories...
So, are you a responsible writer who plans a story outline?
A writer is only half responsible for what he writes. I promise you.
Once I have given my characters their names, they begin to take over. Their personalities emerge and have very little to do with what I had originally planned for them. The hardened hero often takes on a schoolboy vulnerability and my heroines have the colour of their hair changing several times before the end of the tale. Not one of your modern hair colour products either, because the majority of my people are ensconced in the Regency period with only the occasional time shift, if you're lucky.

Smashwords book reviews by Suzy Stewart Dubot

  • The Writer on Oct. 06, 2011

    I liked it! You've said it in few words and well. That must be worth something (how about 4 stars as it was brief)? The problem is that we writer's can't afford to buy other writers' works until someone buys ours...
  • Black Hole Witch on Oct. 07, 2011

    Interesting concept for a short story. Written simply so easy to read. Would have liked to know a little more about the origin of the spaceship and its occupants. Thank you for a free read!
  • A Bridge of Letters on Oct. 07, 2011

    Excellent short story! Wished it hadn't ended quite so abruptly as I know they're still out there 'travelling'. Now going to look at other things you've written...
  • Death By Drowning on Oct. 08, 2011

    Another good read that was well told. I certainly have a preference for your short stories. Keep them coming!
  • A Professional's Four Quarters on Nov. 08, 2011

    Enjoyed the story. It made a good quick read with a fitting end!
  • One of Those Days on Nov. 08, 2011

    Well, I had to laugh. I'm not too taken with 'erotica' because it easily slips into pornography. In my opinion, your story falls into the category of pornography. However, the fact that it was short and didn't dwell on the acts had me reading to the end. You had an excellent pay-off. I think you should keep going with the comedy even if the situations use 'erotica' (rather than porn). You might reach a larger public...
  • The Megan Diaries ---- Happy Birthday on Nov. 08, 2011

    I didn't laugh at the end as I did with another you wrote but it was amusing all the way through. Damn, now I'm going to have to read all your others... You've got a way with a story!
  • Looking for Mr. Right on Nov. 09, 2011

    For me, you've found the happy medium between sex and the story line. Good one or should I say 'Just right'!
  • Thief on Nov. 13, 2011

    I particularly enjoyed the humour, which may be what you are selling in the long run? It had me laughing with the consultant's dialogue and his view of things. I highly recommend continuing with comedy writing as you have a knack for it. In this story it was more important than solving the crimes (which I found a little far-fetched)!
  • Tonight on Nov. 13, 2011

    I can hardly believe that the same person wrote this as wrote your others as it is so different. You have done a great job with setting the mood and your character is frighteningly real! Excellent. The pay-off was a bit too mild for me. It seemed that you added it as an afterthought as it wasn't all that important which day she went out as she is irresistable anyway. Keep writing and I'll keep enjoying your stories!
  • An Alien Abduction for Christmas: A Short Story on Nov. 28, 2011

    Loved the tale! Love your sense of humour too which is almost British (that is a double compliment!).
  • Alvin's Farm Book 1: Alvin's Farm on Dec. 02, 2011

    Excellent! A very touching story that makes one wonder if it is fiction as the author has written with such sensitivity that her characters could very well be real. The words used are a pleasure in themselves.
  • Once Upon a Lightyear on Dec. 04, 2011

    A humorous bedtime tale for all ages! Really liked the imagery conjured up in only a few pages. Felt a little disappointed with the end. Fantastic book covers!
  • Happy Landings on Dec. 06, 2011

    Have to give this the full 5! It had me laughing from the moment the 'Airport ->' sign came into view until the end! A great story, well told (just hope it wasn't from experience). Read it yourselves and it will put you in a good humour for the rest of the day...
  • Crash Report on Dec. 22, 2011

    Liked this! Short and neat. It was treated with (I presume) the proper jargon making it all the more credible. Now going to look for anything else written by the author...
  • Hear, O on Dec. 30, 2011

    A short story of our times, it is well written with great sensitivity. The people (not 'characters') will remain with me for some time to come... I can recommend this without hestitation.
  • A Lonely Ghost Girl on Jan. 01, 2012

    A pleasant style for a short story. Will look out for other works by you.
  • Cocoa Almond Darling on Jan. 03, 2012

    A captivating story that was told in an orginal style which made it all the more real. This is the second I have read by this author and both have left me emotionally involved.
  • Dancing Around the Fire on Jan. 06, 2012

    For such a short story this author has established the atmosphere in a few short lines. A full story told in few words with a surprising (or not) end. Any grammatical/spelling errors can be put down to the story's setting, whether that be the case or not.
  • The Blind Philosopher and the God of Small Things on Jan. 08, 2012

    This author was recommended to me by a fellow-writer. I am not a great fan of poetry in general but R. L. Stephenson, Rupert Brooke, Sir Walter Scott, Henry Reed are a few who have kept me reading it through the years. Barnaby Wilde is now amongst those able to keep my attention until the end. In this collection, I was constantly reminded of Lewis Carroll. Not a bad thing at all. A ‘Beachcomber’s Tale’ pleased me in particular. I shall be reading other of Barnaby Wilde’s works (I am now curious to know how he arrived at his pseudonym?), not just his poetry, so it is safe to assume that I too recommend this author!
  • The Huguenots Come To Ballyronan, Northern Ireland on Jan. 11, 2012

    An interesting, although brief, overview of the Huguenots in Northern Ireland that might encourage one to delve into their history more deeply.
  • The Miracle: Extended Edition on Jan. 13, 2012

    I read the first part of this story and now the extended version. A good story told in diary form by the four main characters. You can't help getting involved with their lives, which are quite credible. Once again, a little sorry when I came to the end, although it finished on a high note. Shall look forward to other tales by this author.
  • The Nosy Neighbor on Jan. 13, 2012

    Writers of erotica aren't generally known for their literary talent. Their aim is to get down to the hard stuff without the frills. This author has managed to combine a story with the erotica. It is well written with a beginning and a plausible end and with some humour thrown in. Don't be surprised if there is voyeurism. The story's category should be enough to warn because reading erotica means you're a voyeur!
  • Musings while in traffic on Jan. 14, 2012

    Well, you have to laugh! Wonder how many Europeans know what a tacos looks like? You may be missing out on a market...
  • Leo Rache. on Feb. 08, 2012

    A fascinating but frustrating read. I wanted to shake Leo. I wanted to push him on to better things with his poetry, his creativity. As the author says the story is heavily drawn from personal experiences, I am happy to see that he has been very positively productive, unlike the Leo who leaves us wondering...
  • Take Me Home on Feb. 08, 2012

    An enjoyable tale, which kept me reading until the end. Mr. James has the knack of capturing life in a small English town so well that you can almost smell the cold air. Hope he will gives us more of his light entertainment.
  • ParaDick Sharry on Feb. 09, 2012

    Well, we were warned that this was abnormal paranormal with wraith-inhibited sinning. That is a mild description! I enjoyed this wacky futurist story that even had the vocabulary to accompany it! Let me warn you that you need to be shut away from civilisation to be able to appreciate this unusual tale.
  • Growing Up in the 60s Wasn’t All Fun and Games on Feb. 09, 2012

    The story told here by David Dilley cannot leave you indifferent. Depending on whether you are male or female, it will probably affect the way you view his young life but as a mother of three, it left me feeling sad. He has obviously thought about his past a good deal because he has written it well enough that it kept me reading until the end. For me, he captured the mood of the 60's in this short story.
  • An Arrangement on Feb. 10, 2012

    Most erotica hardly bothers with a story-line. Ms. Hearst has managed for her story to lead somewhere via an erotic path. It was a good idea to have the bouquets as they added a nice touch of realism to the read. Better than a lot of erotica...
  • Life ... (plus ten) on Feb. 10, 2012

    Brilliant! The sound of the words used and the twist in the tail (or is that tale?) add to the clever rhyming. Amusing and yet poignant he had certainly touched on Life with these poems. I shall read again which is how I know it is worth a 5 star rating and the few pennies it cost me!
  • Confessional Sins on Feb. 17, 2012

    This flash short story makes an impact in few words. The author has touched on a sensitve current event but it makes me wonder what the story's impact would have been like twenty or more years ago? This story has made me curious enough to want to read others...
  • To The Walls on Feb. 17, 2012

    Another flash short story that worked quite well. No padding out of the story. It was meant to be a quicky all round. ;))
  • Dog Eared on Feb. 17, 2012

    Clever and very wittily done. It made me laugh out loud a couple of times. Hardly think it needs cencorship though. Good read.
  • Inside Source on Feb. 21, 2012

    This erotica is within the realms of the ordinary person. It draws in the reader with a story that envelopes more than words written solely to excite. They are plausible words that get us to believe.
  • Breakfast In Paris on Feb. 23, 2012

    What can I say? It is a wonderfully well written tale creating a vague malaise for the principle character right up until the end, when he is finally shot of it. Well worth reading for the story and the pleasure of the words used.
  • Loving the Fog on March 11, 2012

    A breath of fresh air is apt in describing this 'erotica' short story. Unlike so much erotica that seems to have no real substance at all, this one has managed to conjure up a tantalizing tale that will also please paranormal fans!
  • Alysse on March 12, 2012

    Quite exceptional... The man has to have been there to write about it so poignantly. In fact, he is the man. Five stars without a moment's hesitation.
  • In The Shadow of Pan on March 16, 2012

    I am not a fan of horror stories but this one was very cleverly written. There was an easy flow to the writing which draws the unsuspecting reader into the story's drama. I can recommend, even to those like me who hesitate reading a scary story.
  • The Boy Died In Vietnam on April 12, 2012

    Being of a similar age to the author and having been well aware of the war in Viet Nam, this story affected me perhaps more than someone younger. I read it in one day... A young man who had a promising future before entering the war, returns from Viet Nam a changed person. He will spend the next 42 years of his life as a misfit. These memoirs are well documented so that one is drawn into the hopelessness resulting from a war fought by so many young, impressionable people. Mr. Bick has struggled on when so many others have fallen for one reason or another. I am quite humbled by his will to survive when up against so much adversity and ignorance.
  • I Await on April 12, 2012

    I wanted to read a romance written by a man. Mr Bick has provided me with one that is touching. It gives pause for thought for all those moments, words, declarations that we have put aside to do later. I am, nevertheless, of the opinion that actions speak louder than words. Read and you will see.
  • Two Dozen Visions on June 06, 2012

    How many times have I said 'I do not like poetry'? and yet I continue to read it because, on a rare day, I will find verses that are more than rhymes or rhythms . They are verses that magically weave words with emotions and possibly soul-searched truths. 'Two Dozen Visions' is just such a work which has left me fragile from its impact. Poetry is personal but I feel that this collection has something to touch everyone...
  • In The Next Life on June 26, 2012

    A touching tale told on two planes. Mr. Bick magically entwines the lives of modern workers on an archaeological dig with those whom they are gradually unearthing. A woman archaeologist and a pilot are both haunted by repetitive nightmares and when their paths meet, unexplained emotions are barely contained. A good read written convincingly.
  • Beaner on July 19, 2012

    Excellent! If you hadn't been fair, I would have thought that you had done the undercover work yourself. Good, credible story and dialogue, told in under 4000 words. I shall be reading many more of your works.
  • Watchin' Scotty Grow on Aug. 02, 2012

    I was curious to see that this ‘flash work’ (less than 1000 words) provoked two very different appreciations. So, I decided to make my own evaluation. First of all, I wondered who Bobby Goldsboro is/was. I’d never heard of him. Found that he is an American country and pop singer-songwriter and one of his songs is – 'Watchin’ Scotty Grow.' Looked for it on YouTube, listened to it and found it was sentimental like a lot of American country music. Right, that was the setting for what I was about to read. Following cleverly in Bobby Goldsboro’s footsteps this work subtly added wistfulness, a touch of jealousy, and a humanness to the father. It actually added a depth and credibility, in my opinion, that was lacking in that original version. I’m going to have to give this story my five stars.
  • Stories From The Pumpkin Woods on Nov. 22, 2012

    I have had this story on my Kindle for some time, waiting for my full attention. Well, I'm glad I finally found the time because it transported me to another world, providing pure entertainment. I don't believe that this story, not unlike ones written by Tolkien, is reserved for any age group in particular. Vivid descriptions make it easy to be drawn into this tale, which I recommend!
  • Yule at My Feet on Dec. 02, 2012

    A delightful tale for young or old. Elizabeth Rowan Keith has conjured magic with her words but then the story is magic too, filled with the little folk. I had the impression that the author was there! Can heartily recommend.
  • Flowers for Mercedes on Dec. 06, 2012

    Excellent entertainment! Well, written and edited. Barnaby Wilde relates a tale as though he had lived it. No, I know he isn't D.I. Flowers and I'm pretty sure he isn't Mercedes... Perhaps the intimidating biker? In any case, he's got the story to perfection. I can absolutely recommend this tale with no hesitation!

    Light verse? Sometimes. Touching? Yes. The poems in this collection cannot leave you indifferent. Sometimes you have to smile while others leave you a little sorrowful. I think there are verses here for everyone and I can recommend.
  • Tales from The Painted Door III: Molly's Walk on July 19, 2013

    Mr. Keith has known how to pick up with his 'Painted Door' series and weave another very human tale. He has the knack of scratching under the surface and revealing the essential of his characters. Another tale well told!
  • Saving Triott Chicken on Aug. 07, 2013

    The telling of this tale is quite extraordinary. I am only sorry that I wasn't able to 'hear' the person relating it for it to be perfectly perfect! Where does fiction take over from reality? Does it matter although I am convinced that little chicken is very real - pictures to prove it. I can recommend this fable if you like to laugh. My only real question is - hen or cock?
