Texas native Susan Mary Malone has published two novels, co-authored four nonfiction books, and written many short stories. Her happiness is fiction, wine, and Labrador Retrievers, the latter of which she raises, trains, and shows. Literature is her love. In addition to writing, she edits; fifty-plus Malone-edited books have sold to traditional publishers, and one of them was made into a Hallmark Hall of Fame film (while another is in production, set to be released in 2015). Her stories revolve around the passions and purpose, the myths and meaning of women’s lives. Which often involves wine. She does, however, try to keep the Labradors out of that.

A NEW NOVEL WITH A TEXAS TWIST

A NEW NOVEL WITH A TEXAS TWIST

How about a new novel with a Texas Twist? What if you had a fantasy lover and he came to full-blown technicolor life?


Would people think you were a liar? Psychotic? Who would you trust to tell?

Shawna counts on only her closest friends but can offer no explanation, even to her therapist—or herself—though her two Labradors know the truth too well.


The timing couldn’t be worse. A hip Jungian analys

“But you cannot understand life and its mysteries as long as you try to grasp it. Indeed, you cannot grasp it, just as you cannot walk off with a river in a bucket. If you try to capture running water in a bucket, it is clear that you do not understand it and that you will always be disappointed, for in the bucket the water does not run. To “have” running water you must let go of it and let it run.”

Good to connect, Mike! And our shelves are similar :) I love your group as well, and keep meaning to participate more.
Writer's bloc doesn't get me--but that isn't to say I don't have writer's frustration at times.
And isn't Texas the most wondrous amalgam of different states :)
All the Best back to You!
Susan

Lawyer Dear Susan, Thank you for your friendship. It was a pleasure comparing our library shelves. We share an uncanny similarity in rating the books we both love. I do look forward to sharing many more fine reads with you in the future. And best wishes on your writing. It's a true blessing you've never been faced with the challenge of writer's block. Would that I could say the same. Wishing you all the best. Here's to Texas. I've loved every bit of ground there I've ever stood on. From the Big Thicket to the Hill Country through the Mesquite flats, there is a beauty there I can return to time and again. All the best.

message 5: by Susan

Susan Malone Love this new 5-star review of I JUST CAME HERE TO DANCE :
When I started reading this book I had to put it down and laugh....not because it was so funny...but because the characters are so delightfully drawn. I know these people!! The story is compelling, touching, and sure enough could only take place in small town Texas. It's a book of discovery, far deeper and philosophical than one is led to believe after reading the first chapter. Characters work their way down a convoluted path of self discovery...and..so does the reader. Actually, be prepared to read fast. Stop. Go back and re-read unfolding a whole new level of thinking. It's the story of a small town wife dealing with infidelity. Or is it? And it all happens in a Texas town like the one just down the road from where you live.
