A Visit with Author Susan Crandall

There are many things I love about being with my publisher, Grand Central Publishing, and one of them is that I'm in great company. There are so many fabulous authors writing for Grand Central. I hope you'll be as excited as I am to visit just a few with me in the next couple of weeks.

I'm excited to start our visits with women's fiction and suspense author, Susan Crandall. BACK ROADS was Susan's first published work, and her first award winning novel, winning a RITA for Best First Book and two National Reader's Choice Awards. After this amazing start, Susan sold eight more books. The latest will be released in January of 2010 and is titled SLEEP NO MORE.
The night was always Abby Whitman’s enemy. As a young girl she walked in her sleep, and one night, started a fire that scarred her sister for life and left Abby with unbearable guilt, and a loneliness that echoes within her


Now Abby has begun blacking out again—with apparently fatal results. A car accident has killed the son of a prominent family. Even though the evidence seems to exonerate her, Abby is plagued by doubts—and soon by mysterious threats. A young psychiatrist, Dr. Jason Coble, is intrigued by Abby and offers to help her explore the dark recesses in her mind. Through this terrifying journey, Jason’s interest turns to passion, and he yearns to give her the love she craves. But first, Abby must trust him—and shed light on
secrets that will rock this Southern town and reveal a danger that threatens them both.
Doesn't that sound great?! I can't wait until it's released!

Visit Susan's website to learn more about Susan and her books, then come back and le
av e a comment - perhaps something you learned about Susan or her books. At the end of the day, one lucky person will win a copy of SEEING RED which was released this year. Romantic Times Magazine said about SEEING RED, "A tight and suspenseful story that will have readers guessing until the last chapter. Poignant in places and nail-bitingly tense in others..."

Good luck on winning SEEING RED, and don't forget to put SLEEP NO MORE on your Christmas list!


  1. Seeing Red sounds intriquing.
    I learned that Susan and her sister co-authored 4 books but none were published. Susan got the writing bug and continued on from there.


  2. I learned that Susan's previous profession was dental hygienist.
    I read Back Roads and enjoyed it very much.
