This is Susan Fields.
I am a wife, mother, writer, avid coffee drinker, and insomniac. I like to read, study the bible, cook, run, walk the dog, play tennis, ski, nap, and get up in the middle of the night for some quiet writing time while the rest of the house is asleep. I tend towards YA but have written some middle grade. Fantasy is my favorite, but I also write action adventure and mystery, and I almost always include romance in the mix, whatever the genre.
Isn't that awesome that she writes both YA and MG? I think so. I wouldn't even even know where to start with MG. And look at all the cool hobbies she has to keep her busy!
Let's get to the interview so we can learn more about her writing hobby :)
Susan, how long have you been writing?
All my life. I wrote my first book in 2nd grade for a school assignment. I've been writing seriously in hopes of publication for the past few years.
(Wow! A whole book in 2nd grade? That's amazing!)
So, what made you want to write?
It's just something I've always loved to do. I just love making stuff up, I guess. :)
Do you have any pet peeves while writing?
My annoying habit of checking email way too much.
(I'm guilty of the same thing.)
What are your favorite genres to write?
Fantasy. If it can't happen in real life, then I'm interested! And a few years ago I discovered a love of romance, so now all my books have an element of romance as well.
(I love fantasy too. And romance is a must! I'm convinced that it makes any story that much better.)
Quick, you only have five minutes to check one or two writing blogs, which ones would you go to?
I love these blogs because they're fun, they brighten my day, and I feel a conection with the people behind them. They feel like old friends, even though the only one I know in real life is Sharon.
(Thanks for sharing! I can't wait to visit them.)
If you could pick the setting of one book to live in, which would it be?
What's your favorite:
Book- The Hunger Games
Author- Suzanne Collins
Character- Katniss Everdeen
Thing about writing- writing a scene I'm in love with
Time of the day- early, early morning when everyone else is asleep and it's just me, my laptop, and a pot of coffee
And last, but not least, do you prefer fruity candy or chocolate?
Sounds yummy! Thanks so much Susan for being on my blog today. And thanks to those who stopped by! Be sure to visit Susan's blog next :)
Have a great weekend!
