I want my readers to be inspired to find the kind of love they desire and deserve. By having a clear vision of the love you want to find and refusing to settle for anything less, you can find the love of your life, the person who feels like home to you.

Most importantly, you have to love yourself first before you can love anyone else the way they deserve to be loved. When I was in my teens, I thought that if I had a boyfriend I wouldn't be lonely or depressed anymore. But you are the only one who can fill those voids in your life. No one else can complete you. So while my love stories are about epic romances between soul mates, they are also about learning to love yourself.(less)

“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

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 :)

Looking forward to more great reads!

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.
