Today in the hotseat I have the supercool Lisa Suzanne, author of contemporary romance. She gave me a few minutes of her time recently and I am excited to have her on!
About the author
Lisa Suzanne started handwriting her books on yellow legal pads after she took a creative writing class in high school. She still has those legal pads full of stories, but now one of them is published under the title How He Really Feels. She currently works as a full time high school English teacher, and her favorite part of the year is summer. She has been blessed with the world’s best dog, a supportive family, and a husband who encouraged her to publish after reading one of her novels. She likes the advice of Ernest Hemingway’s famous quote, “Write drunk. Edit sober.”
☆●☆☆●☆Hotseat☆●☆☆●☆ Five questions
1.Do you prefer to write during the day or night? Before I published, I could only write really late at night! But now I write whenever I can fit it in.
2. Name one song you could listen to everyday and never grow tired of it. "Demons" by Imagine Dragons
3. What is your favorite dessert? Cheesecake! My favorite is the White Chocolate Caramel Macadamia Nut one from Cheesecake Factory
4.Do you outline your story or fly by the seat of your pants? I've always been a "pantser," which always felt extremely hypocritical given the fact that I teach high school English and I force my students to outline. But when I wrote Vintage, I needed to outline events because of the suspense angle. So I'm a recent convert from a "pantser" to a "planner."
5. What are you currently working on? I'm working on a series that was actually the first series I ever completed. I started writing it probably fifteen years ago and it has gone through many changes and revisions over the years. I'm actually contemplating putting the first version up on Wattpad and then publishing the new, revised version. It's so completely different! I can't wait to finish it and share it!
Coming Soon! May 1st
Vintage (volume 1)
Born the daughter of a rock star and his groupie, my life should have been full of glitz and glamour. But the excess and embarrassment of that life didn’t interest me. Instead, I killed time at Vintage, a record store where I stocked shelves and lacked ambition.
Everything changed the moment I pressed play. One simple lyric awakened me.
When I stopped denying my attraction to the man behind the music, I started questioning his intentions. We were meant to cross paths, but it wasn’t because of fate.
Someone was playing with our lives.
