A Letter from Suzanne

Dear Readers,

Yes, it’s true–after 26 books, I am no longer writing romance novels. Why? You can read the whole story here (a brief excerpt of which you will find below).

I love the challenge of writing in new and different directions. I love the sheer versatility of writing, the ability to re-invent myself as many times as I like, learning new things and setting new goals. There are always new mountains to climb and new dreams to dream. I have a lot of passion these days for writing about my farm, my animals, old-fashioned cooking, and country life, and, as always, I believe in following your passion. It is my single criteria for everything I write, whether it is my blog or my books. I owe passion to myself, and I owe passion to my readers who either plunk down their dollars for my books or open that bookmark in their browser to come to my blog. I write because I’m driven to share my passion with other people and affect them in a positive way, and so without that passion, there is no impact and there is no purpose for me.

I am a writer, and I am still writing. Where can you find my work now? I write a country living column for the Charleston Daily Mail. You can read my recent columns here. I also write every day here at Chickens in the Road. Come see me! The best is yet to be.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
