Book Banter Season 3 Opener: Susan Horsnell Interview

Hello My Happy People.

I was scrambling to get ready for season three. I was doing good and had time to relax and then as always happens, Murphy's Law had to rear his ugly head and mess up my plans by giving me the flu.

I am recovering, but I am scrambling to get everything set up for the beginning of our season three episodes. For the next eight weeks we have some amazing authors who have published books on all aspect of love: self-love, love for life, love for female-led comedies, how to get over the loss of a loved one, and of course romantic love. We have romance authors from sweet, no heat to hot and spicy!

Today I am sharing my chat with Susan Horsnell. Susan is a USA Today Bestselling author from Queensland, Australia whose book catalog includes a selection of sub-genre romance themes. The sub-genres she likes to write include a wide variety from sweet westerns with Christian themes, to historical, gay, shape shifter, mafia, and contemporary romance. She has even written non-fiction and a few children's books to keep the mix truly diverse. 

With more than sixty published works, traditionally and indie published, including novels and novellas, Susan has built a solid reputation for herself in the romance community and a loyal following of devoted readers. She is proof that an author can dabble in various sub-genres and not lose their market. 

The women had a great time chatting about Susan's inspirations, her process and so much more. Click the purple microphone below to checkout the full interview. Don't forget to check out Susan's pages in Book Banter Magazine this month.
