Suzie Carr Novelist

Hello! I’m Suzie Carr and here’s why I love fiction books…

The written word, when weaved together in a subtle and provocative dance, can grab a hold of a heart and leave one breathless. Great fiction books, in my opinion, are those that offer the tease for something remarkable with each flip of the page. Small gestures, often times, give birth to such a tease, be it that first accidental brushing up against another or the tiniest whisper of intrigue crafted out of a thoughtful glance.

When a writer can take a reader to that desirable spot where a heart flutters and yearns for more, she’s captured the art of writing. That capture is my ultimate desire, and the very reason I rise at 2:30 a.m. and stumble, bleary-eyed, to my computer to study and practice the art of writing fiction books.
