Welcome to another of my blog interviews with novelists, poets, short story authors, biographers, agents, publishers and more. Today’s is with contemporary, humorous fiction and chicklit author Suzie Tullett. A list of interviewees (blogged and scheduled) can be found here. If you like what you read, please do go and investigate further.
Morgen: Hello, Suzie. Please tell us something about yourself, where you’re based, and how you came to be a writer.
Suzie: I’m author Suzie Tullett, from Lancashire in the North of England. I’ve been married for almost 25 years and have two very gorgeous sons; one of whom now lives in Holland and one who lives just outside London. Prior to writing novels I was a scriptwriter by profession, although in the early days of my writing career I was also lucky enough to have some poetry and short stories published, too. Up until recently I’d been spending a lot of time out in Greece. The landscape there is absolutely stunning, and the culture and history of the place fascinating. It provided a great setting for ‘Little White Lies and Butterflies’.
Morgen: I’ve never been, Cyprus is as close as I have got, but it looks beautiful. You mentioned ‘Little White Lies and Butterflies’, genre do you generally write and what have you had published to-date?
Suzie: I write contemporary, humorous fiction and chicklit. I’ve already mentioned the short stories and poetry I’ve had published, but I’m also due to have my second novel sent out into the world. It’s due for release on the 1st August and I’m so excited to hear what readers think, you wouldn’t believe.
Morgen: Oh, I would. 🙂 It would be great to learn how the launch went, perhaps you’d like to come back for an author spotlight later in the year. What do you think of eBooks?
Suzie: When it comes to eBooks, as long as people are reading that’s the main thing. And yes, I do have an e-reader myself, I have a Kindle. I find that living between two countries it’s ideal for keeping the weight of my luggage down. And as I often say, it’s like having a library in my handbag.
Morgen: They do say that e-Readers, mobiles etc have got more people reading so that can only be a good thing. I have 400+ novels on my iPad, plus I get to Facebook and play Word Drop on it. I do love technology. ‘Little White Lies and Butterflies’ is published with Safkhet, have you self-published? If so, what lead to you going your own way?
