Today we get write to the point with Susan Page Davis. This is Susan’s third time here at Genesis 5020. You can read her first two posts here and here. She has a great giveaway for you today, so enjoy!
Tell us about your newest book.
The Charm Bracelet is a contemporary romance novel.
When Lisa Archer’s charm bracelet is caught in a mall escalator, she is rescued by a flippant but dashing EMT. Steve Rollins seems to understand only too well Lisa’s mixed feelings toward her escort, Dr. Bryan Cooper, who gave her the bracelet. Lisa and Steve meet again, and the sparks fly. Steve is sure Lisa hates him, and Lisa can’t help comparing vibrant Steve to mediocre Bryan, although Steve makes her furious every time she sees him. She tells Bryan she no longer wants to wear the charm bracelet, angering Bryan, and both are injured in an auto accident. When Steve responds to the emergency call and finds that Lisa is one of the accident victims, his guilt weighs him down. Will he have the chance to ask Lisa’s forgiveness and start over in his clumsy attempts to win her heart? With a lot of prayer and some manipulation from Steve’s sister, he may be able to charm his way into Lisa’s life. The book also includes a bonus short story, “Wandering Irises,” by Susan Page Davis.
What do you do when you’re not writing?
Nowadays I don’t get time to do a lot, but I enjoy reading, spending time with my family, and traveling when I can. I also like to walk and do logic puzzles.
Where do you get your ideas?
Wherever I find them. Often when I’m researching for one book, I will run across something that triggers an idea for another. A conversation or something I hear on TV will often spark an idea as well.
Do you outline or are you a seat-of-the-pants writer?
I outline with a vengeance. I started out as a “pantser,” but I’ve found that the writing stage goes a lot easier and the plot comes out more cohesive if I outline first.
Have you written a book you love that you have not been able to get published?
Yes, the first book I ever wrote, a mystery with a police officer as the hero. I actually sold a sequel to it as a standalone, so if I ever go ahead with the first one, I’ll have to do a different sequel.
Are you like any of the characters in your book?
Sometimes I think like Lisa does—or should I say Lisa thinks the way I do?
Are you working on a new project now?
Right now I’m working on a western romance called The Outlaw Takes a Bride, for Barbour Publishing. It will release next spring. I’ve also got a couple of Christmas novellas coming out this fall, and two cozies for Guideposts coming soon, All that Glitters and Empty Saddle.
