“If I loved you less, I might be able to talk about it more.” ~ Jane Austen

Sue Barr has always had an active imagination, which is a huge asset if you grew up in a small prairie town. Many hours passed as she built and decorated her cardboard Barbie house, or lined up all her toys and became the doctor, dispensing ‘Goodie candies’ as prescribed medication – of which she kept copious amounts of written charts in her closet office. Coupled with that was an innate desire to tell stories. Her very patient grandmother suffered through the telling and re-telling of favourite fairy tales.

Now Sue exercises her imagination by

When I taught Sunday School, as well as when I babysat, I told outrageous stories, using different voices and accents. I had my own puppets and wasn't afraid to use stuffed animals as supporting characters. My reward was the children asking for more. This has transferred to a desire to tell a story that adults like, and ask for more.(less)

I'm glad you asked because I DID have a mystery (which has never been solved) and I wrote it into my book According to Plan.
The phone rang early one morning and when I answered, all I heard was a digital voice saying, "Enter the four letter password into your computer now". This stayed with me and when I wrote According to Plan, starring an undercover Federal Agent and his estranged wife, a P.I., it seemed fitting that he would receive a message exactly like that from a deep, deep undercover associate.(less)

More of Sue's books…
“When did all the men in her life become so addlepated over a few country misses?”
Sue Barr, CAROLINE

“I have a fabulous idea."
"Oh, I don't like this. Last time you had a fabulous idea, I wore a cast for six weeks. I still can't straighten my arm completely."
"That was years ago," I said, brushing aside her concern. "This one will work. Do you have any exceptionally handsome men friends, willing to be my fiancé?”
Sue Barr, Fiance for Hire

“More. Give me more.
I don't know if you're ready for this. He's shirtless.
You're killing me. Is he built?
Like a Greek god.
Nooooo.....so unfair. I don't have any hot neighbors, just acres and acres of corn fields.”
Sue Barr, Man of Her Dreams

“Where are you staying?
Our house. He shifted closer and I stopped breathing.
Not good. I really needed to breathe and leaned back further in my chair to put space between me and his stubble darkened chin, his oh-so-kissable mouth, his windblown hair, his...his...everything.
For the zillionth time, I wondered what the statute of limitations was on stupid decisions. Marrying him had to top the list.”
