Feature on Susan Carlisle & His Heart's Home

  This week our Feature on Author is on: Susan Carlisle. She has a new book out this month, His Heart's Home (Modern Masters of their Castle Book 3)

Susan Carlisle’s love affair with books began when she made a bad grade in math in the sixth grade. Not allowed to watch TV until she brought the grade up, Susan filled her time with books. She turned her love of reading into a love of writing. Susan has released through HarperCollins’s Harlequin medical imprint over thirty contemporary romances. Her Modern Masters of Their Castles trilogy is under her own imprint. Her steamy stories have strong heroes with the vibrant women who challenge them.

Her traditionally published nonfiction book Nick’s New Heart 30 Years and Counting came out on March 2021, under Susan May. It is about her son’s heart transplant experience. The second, a historical biography A WWII Flight Surgeon’s Story was released by Pelican Publishing under the author name S. Carlisle May.

Do you think someone could be a writer if they don’t feel emotions strongly?
       I don't see why not, but I do think they might have to work harder to bring deep emotions to the page. Many people don't show their feelings yet they have strong ones. 

What was an early experience where you learned that language had power?
       I learned that most clearly with my children. I had to be careful what I said when I was mad because it affected our relationship and their belief in themselves. They remember those words and how they made them feel even today. My words still carry weight with my grown children.

As a writer, what would you choose as your mascot/avatar/spirit animal?
        I guess it would be a raccoon. I have a special place in my heart for raccoons because I had one as a pet when I was a child. I still have a soft spot for the masked sneaky animals.
