Hear Us Roar
If you’re an aspiring author and want insights into what’s involved in launching a book into the world, this is the podcast for you. Maggie Smith, author and blogger, interviews debut novelists from the Women’s Fiction Writers Association discussing not only the inspiration behind their book, but also their insights into the writing process, the best advice they ever got, and the joys and sometimes pitfalls they encountered on their path to publication.
If you’re a pantser, this interview is for you! Susan is squarely in the camp of letting your characters tell you their story and she’s got the books to prove it. She’s a prolific romance novelist who is now venturing into women’s fiction, specifically historical tales from late 1800’s America. Her best advice? Stay true to your unique vision. Every trope started with a writer who said “but what if I did it differently?”
A voracious reader her whole life, Susan Payne loves the written word. When reading more than fifty books per month wasn’t enough, she decided to allow her mind to take flight and write all the many stories that kept intruding in her life. She blended her love of history and her love of words to create over eighty stories. All historical and centering on a couple finding love and a happy ever after together.
