Susan Furlong I don't wait for inspiration. I set a schedule for writing and stick to it. If I waited for inspiration, I probably wouldn't accomplish much writing.

Susan Furlong answered Juanita's question: Susan Furlong
Hi, Juanita. I'm happy that you enjoyed the Novel Idea mysteries. The publisher did not continue the series past the 5th book. I was also disappointed because I loved writing the characters.
More of Susan's books…
“Wilco and I would find a body, a young soldier, nothing more than a boy or girl really, and I’d see the marriage that would never be, the kids and grandkids that would never happen, a family tree altered forever. I grew to understand that there was no closure for the heart-wrenching grief felt by those who have loved and lost. They’d hold their sorrow for a lifetime of milestones that would never be. And that realization slowly ate away at me.”
Susan Furlong, Splintered Silence

“Southern Girl Secrets #107: If someone’s tryin’ to bring you down, it’s just ’cause they know you’re above them.”
Susan Furlong, War and Peach

“When death settles in, it evicts the soul and devours the flesh, and reduces a whole life to nothing but dry bones and a mere smudge of bio matter.”
Susan Furlong, Splintered Silence

“If the burden is too much and stays too long, even love bends, cracks, comes close to breaking and sometimes does break. But when it's in a thousand pieces around your feet, that doesn't mean it's no longer love.”
Ayọ̀bámi Adébáyọ̀, Stay with Me

“Writing is not always a writer's playtime. It's actually a work in progress. Few understand this and mistakenly believe we're wasting time. But it's never a waste of time when doing what you love.”
David Lucero, Big Jim

“What's the point of wandering?
to find a better place?
a home?
But the loneliness will always capture me
in its claws
of no tomorrow”
Asper Blurry, Train to the Edge of the Moon
