Today author Susan Page Davis is telling us about her new book, Love Finds You in Prince Edward Island, Canada (April 2011). She has offered an autographed copy of her book to one lucky commenter. She will also be stopping by throughout the week to answer your questions! So if you have anything you want to ask her, you can leave a comment on this post to find out the answer!
Welcome, Susan! Tell us about your salvation experience.
I was saved as a child after attending Vacation Bible School. My parents were young Christians, and I grew up in church. At VBS I understood that I needed to receive Christ personally.
How do you handle disasters/BIG problems? Do you have a funny or interesting story showcasing how you handle them?
Not very well. I prefer to be prepared, but sometimes life knocks you silly. I usually cry, pray, and get some advice from people wiser than I am.
Tell us something surprising about yourself that readers may not know.
I once tied a murderer’s necktie. I was reporting on the trial for a newspaper and after the lunch break I went back into the courtroom early. No one else was back yet except the defendant and his guard. The guard was trying to help the man tie his tie, but was having trouble doing it “backward.” He asked if I could tie one on another person, so I did it. Later that day, the defendant was convicted of murder.
What is one book that you recently read and would recommend to your readers?
I just read Raider’s Heart, by Marcia Gruver, in her new Backwoods Brides series. I enjoyed it a lot. Now I’m starting to read The Amish Midwife by Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould. I know I’m going to love this one, too.
What is your favorite time of day to write?
Morning. I droop late in the day. Definitely a morning person.
If you compared your writing style to any other Christian Fiction author, who would it be? Also, how would you rate the romance in your books?
My romance is mostly G-rated. In my new book, Love Finds You in Prince Edward Island, it’s definitely a “proper” romance. I am not sure whose stories mine would compare with—possibly DiAnn Mills.
What are you working on now or going to write next?
I just finished writing Captive Trail, a historical set in 1857 Texas. It’s part of the new Texas Trails series from Moody. The series will open in August, with Darlene Franklin’s book, Lone Star Trail, then my Captive Trail, and then Vickie McDonough’s The Long Trail Home in October. In spring 2012, three more books will release: Darlene’s A Ranger’s Trail; my Cowgirl Trail; and Vickie’s End of the Trail. We’re very excited about this new series, following the Morgan family through six decades of Texas history.
Book’s back cover blurb:
What research did you have to do for this book?
I visited Prince Edward Island and went to many of its historical sites (and Green Gables, of course). I spent some time researching at the archives in Charlottetown and also visited Province House (known as the Colonial Building in the time of my story), where a ball was held for the prince in 1860. I also visited museums and saw the governor’s mansion, as well as enjoying the natural beauty of the island. When I got home I used many books and the Internet to continue my research.
