Single people often have more time to write. Are you single?Single yes, however I have a family, two teenagers. I don’t think that gives me more time to write. If anything I’m always on call.
How does your day start and end?Usually one of the dogs wakes me up by jumping of the bed or snuffling in my ear. I read at night (always M/M), curled up in my bed with one of the dogs.
When is your ideal writing time?Whenever I can find some time. I’m doing two jobs, plus the family. Finding committed writing time is challenging at the moment.
Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?Good question. I think not repeating phrases over and over, particularly when you write a lot of books. Also not writing the same plot/sex scene.
How many books/stories have you written? Do you have a favorite?Hmmm, 50 plus I think. I can’t put my finger on one favourite. Maybe Nothing Ever Happens because it means a lot to me personally and The Isle of… Where? because it reminds me of a wonderful holiday.
Did the characters or the plot come of In-Decision to you first?Most of the characters are from Lisa Worrall’s, Un-Expected, so I didn’t have to make them up. The plot is mine but we discussed it to make sure it fitted with the series.
How did you get the information for Jason’s career as a chef? Research or experience?I like eating out. That’s about the only experience I have! I asked people at a few pubs about their work.
Living in a small town is really different than living in a city. What drew you to that particular setting?Lisa and I wanted to write about village life and all the aspects of everyone knowing your business. As you say it’s totally different from living in a town. Lisa and I are both townies.
Whenever I put out an eBook I always learn something new. Did you learn something about writing or publishing with In-Decision you hadn’t known before?Writing someone else’s characters is interesting. There were times when Lisa felt I hadn’t ‘got’ Micah’s personality, and she was right. I needed to work on that.
Can you share a bit about your future eBooks?I have the second one to The Last Wolf coming out next month and a prequel to Morning Report in June. Then a reissue of a Regency, The Layered Mask in July. I think that’s it so far.
Thanks for answering my questions, Sue! I feel for you and Lisa both, having 2 kids of my own who don't exactly understand "Mom is WRITING!!" lol Congratulations on your new release!

Blurb: Little Mowbury is a sleepy English village deep in the Cotswolds. The kind of village where you’re only a local if your lineage can be traced back to the dinosaurs. Where you can find everything in the single village shop from morning newspapers to dry-cleaning, and getting your shoes mended. And, of course, where everybody knows everybody else’s business. It’s easy to find… you can’t miss it… just ask anyone and they’ll tell you… “It’s left at the crossroads.”
Eighteen months ago Jason Havers lost the love of his life and it's time to move on. Applying for the position of chef in a sleepy country pub, a million miles away from his previous life, may well be the fresh start he needs. His new employers immediately take him under their wing and before long he finds himself with a passel of new friends and a job he loves. What he doesn’t expect is Tom, a gorgeous midwife, who stirs up feelings he’s not ready to deal with.
But when someone from his previous life turns up in Little Mowbury, will Jason be able to keep them from revealing the secret he’s been keeping from those he’s come to love?
Jason worked hard for a couple of hours until the rush died off. He was clearing up the last of the dishes when Maggie came in and handed him an envelope.

Sue Brown is owned by her dog and two children. When she isn't following their orders, she be found haunting coffee shops to feed her coffee addiction. She spends hours people-watching instead of typing. She feeds the plot bunnies, not the word count.
Sue discovered M/M erotica at the time she woke up to find two men kissing on her favorite television series. The series was boring; the kissing was not. She may be late to the party, but she's made up for it since, writing fan fiction until she was brave enough to venture out into the world of original fiction
