Author Interview – Suzanne Anderson

5:00 AM Posted by James Noel , No comments

Have you started another book yet?

I’m just finishing up a women’s contemporary / inspirational novel which will be published before Christmas this year. After that I’ve got a murder mystery that needs to be finished and then I’ve got a romance trilogy on the planning board. So, the next 18 months will be busy!

Where do you see yourself in five years?

With some luck and a lot of hard work, I hope to have published 15 – 20 books in the next five years. I’ll still be living in the mountains (although the location of the mountains may have changed) and surrounded by my wonderful Newfoundland dogs.

When you wish to end your career, stop writing, and look back on your life, what thoughts would you like to have?

When I reach the golden age of 105 and finally sit down to write my memoirs, I will write that the smartest decision I ever made was to pursue my dream of being a published author. Although I was a late bloomer, a writing career was worth the wait.

Do you have any advice for aspiring writers?

The only advice that matters: If you want to be a writer, start writing. It doesn’t matter what you write, just do it every day. Whether it’s an entry in your journal, a poem, a short story, or the first chapter in that novel you’ve always wanted to write, just start. Don’t worry about where it will end up, or whether it’s any good, that’s what second (and third) drafts are for.

What do you do to unwind and relax?

I try to block out one day a week to just relax. On that day I like to find a quiet place and get lost in a good book for several hours. I also enjoy walking my dogs at the off-leash dog trails (if you visit my Facebook page you’ll see several pictures from my morning walks).

Waiting With God

When you feel as if you’ve been abandoned in God’s Waiting Room, this 31-day devotional will provide comfort. Each day features Bible verses for meditation and a short essay for your personal reflection and prayer.

If you’ve ever cried out in desperation, “Help me, Jesus!” You will find comfort in this 31-day devotional for women as we walk together through God’s Word. By the end of our month together, you’ll find Jesus calling you into a relationship that will be a lifelong source of comfort and strength.

Waiting is often when God draws us closest to Him, to receive the gift of His companionship. Instead of waiting on God to fix your life, you’ll find that you are working with God to create the life He’s planned for you all along.

God is with you. God loves you. God will never abandon you.

Though the Lord gave you adversity for food and suffering for drink,

He will still be with you to teach you. You will see your teacher with

your own eyes. Your own ears will hear him.

Right behind you a voice will say, “This is the way you should go,”

whether to the right or to the left. ~ Isaiah 30:20 -22
