I started writing straight suspense as I didn't think I could write the romance aspect. But publishers weren't buying suspense at the time so then I wrote cozy mysteries. In fact my first contract was for a cozy mystery called Nipped in the Bud. But alas, cozies weren't selling so Barbour quit publishing them. I then decided if I wanted to be published that I needed to learn to write romance as romantic suspense was selling. So I finally settled on romantic suspense. It's what I like to read and have loved to read for years. I'm so glad I put in the effort to learn the romance angle as I wouldn't want to be writing anything else!(less)

Christine Hatfield Oh ok


message 3: by Susan

Susan Sleeman Thanks for your interest in my books, Christine! I'm always thrilled to hear from readers who enjoy inspirational and clean read books. How did you learn of my books? Could you please respond in a private message, as for some reason I am unable to locate this comment other than following the link notification sent in my email and I'm more apt to see a message than a comment. Thanks and happy reading.
