“If a girl starts out all casual with a guy and she doesn't tell him that she wants a relationship, it will never become a relationship. If you give the guy the impression that casual is okay with you, that's all he'll ever want. Be straight with him from the start. If he gets scared and runs away, he wasn't right for you.”
Susane Colasanti, Waiting For You

“I'd rather be weird and happy than normal and miserable.”
Susane Colasanti, Waiting For You

“Too bad guys aren’t like Mr. Potato Head Where you can pick and choose which parts you want. Then we might come up with a guy who meets your standards.
- Maggie”

Thank you, friendly neighbor! Yes, I will be writing many more books. Keep reading - it will change your life :)


Samantha Hey Susane,

I wanted to thank you for your books. I am 13 and i have read all your books. I never really liked reading till one day at my school I saw a poster for new books our school got. I saw your book something like fate on the poster. I checked the book out and finished it in a day and a half. I really enjoy your books and cant wait for so much closer to be available. I hope you keep writing more books.

Your biggest Fan,
Samantha

Thank you, friendly neighbor! I am totally writing more books. My fifth one, So Much Closer, will be out in May 2011.

I was actually an Earth Science and Physics teacher first. I miss connecting with teens every day, but as an author I can connect with lots more readers. Which is a very good thing :)

Milly I just read Waiting For You and totally loved it! I am trying to space your books out and read them sparingly because you've only written 4 so far and I've already read 2 of them! Can you please write more? I really do love your style and your taste in the male species. It must be because you are one smart cookie! Biology teacher in your past life right? Love your work!!! Looking forward to more great reads!

Your books are fantastic. Your characters are so easy to relate to, and you give them the best names. Plus, I love all the movies and music that you've mentioned in them- especially in When It Happens. =]


Stephanie Loy Son Hey Susane, thanks for adding me :)
I just wanted to say that I am a big fan of your novels, especially "When It Happens." I just finished reading "Take Me There" and thought it was great read. I am excited for "Wait for Me."
I hope everything is going well and I can't wait for your further writings.
