Who is Susan Carlisle?
A tall, willowy movie star who writes on the side. Not! I'm really a mother of four, grandmother to twins, a traveler, a lover of castles and hats. A James Bond fan and a voracious romance reader. I'm the average person in the grocery store, nothing glamorous about me.
What inspired you to be a writer?
The love of money? Not really. I'm not part of the rich and famous. Truthfully, I've been reading romances for over 40 years. One day my mother said, "You ought to think about writing one of those yourself." So I decide I would.
How did you chose your genre?
I write what I love to read. It is just that simple. If I didn't like my stories, I'd have to give up writing.
What made you tell this story and why did you write this book?
It is more like it picked me. The Wallflower's Secret is part of an eight book continuity that my editor asked me to be a part of. I was given the over all story line in which I was to develop the characters. It wasn't hard for me to fall in love with Ryan and Lucy. The setting is New York City and that only added to the fun. I'm super proud of this story.
How did you come up with the title?
Would you believe that I don't get to pick the titles of my books? The covers either. Sadly, those are all left to the marketing department of Harlequin. I can only dream...
