Hi Suzanne! Welcome to our book blog! Please tell us about yourself in 140 characters--like a Twitter bio.
Mother, wife, reader, cook, gardener, dog-walker, WRITER!
If you could trade places with one of your characters in Mad Love for one day, who would you choose and why?
There could only be one answer to this question - Cupid, of course. To get the chance to be one of the Roman gods? Sign me up.
Do any of your characters in Mad Love or your other books have a quirk that is entirely autobiographical?
Hmmm. I've never thought about that. The tricky thing is, even though I've never written about myself, there is no way I can keep myself from seeping into my characters. Every author can be found within his/her writing.
How is Mad Love different from your other books?
It's darker than my other two teen books. Some of my readers will not like that. It's also quirkier. It doesn't fit easily into a category. It's different. But like my other books, it's filled with humor and hope. And lots of love.
What is next after Mad Love? Do you have any current projects?
I'm working on my next YA that will be published in 2012. I'm keeping the plot a secret but I will reveal that it's a fairy tale, with a prince, a farmboy and a peasant girl.
Here is a book trailer of Mad Love made by Suzanne's kids and it's one of the best "homemade" book trailers I've seen.
Be sure to check out Suzanne's website for more info on her books, herself and other updates. It even has a "for teachers" tab where you can download worksheets and get curriculum and art ideas for her books--me being a teacher I think that's super awesome!
Okay... GIVEAWAY time! A lucky reader is in for a late Valentine's Day treat! :D
