FB <3 TW <3 GR <3 SITE

Susan Harris is a writer from Cork in Ireland. 
An avid reader, she quickly grew to love books in the supernatural/fantasy and Dystopian genre.  She writes books for young adults and adults alike.
When she is not writing or reading, she loves music, oriental cultures, tattoos, creepy snow globes, DC shoes, stationary, anything Disney, Marvel movies, psychology and far too many TV shows. If she wasn't a writer, she would love to be a FBI profiler or a PA for Dave Grohl or Jared Leto.


                 


Shattered Memories

(YA Dystopian)

A terrible tragedy forced Alana McCarthy to forget a year of her life. Now she is to be executed for a crime she does not remember committing-the murder of her entire family. Lost and alone, Alana is terrified of unlocking secrets buried so deep inside her mind that she's willing to forget the one person who could set her free. Daniel Costello hasn't forgotten about Alana, and he will do anything and everything to protect the girl he loves. But first, Alana needs to unlock her memories and find out the truth about what happened the night her family was killed. The day of her execution is set. Together, will Alana and Daniel be able to uncover the truth behind her family's deaths before it's too late? Shattered Memories is filled to the brim with gut-wrenching emotion, terrifying truths and unthinkable endings.

Skin and Bones
 (paranormal romance)

Teens are turning up dead, and it will take a special team to catch a killer. 
Derek Doyle has been a member of the Paranormal Investigations Team since the monsters revealed themselves to the world. Considering that he thinks a monster is needed to catch a monster, he's definitely in the right place. As a lone wolf not used to letting many people in, neither man nor beast was prepared for the effect consultant Dr. Ever Chace has on them. 
Growing up human in a world of supernatural creatures, Dr. Ever Chace has always felt a need to be special, to stand out. When asked to consult on a case where teens are being brutalized, she relishes the chance to make a difference and help stop a monster. But working alongside a wolf who she's so drawn to could be the beginning of something Ever might never have envisioned. 
Fate and Destiny have a funny way of creeping up on you when you least expect it. With a murderer on the loose, Ever and Derek will have to put their attraction to one another aside while the hunt continues. 
Easier said than done… right?

Claddagh Author Event Spotlights ~ Rebecca Norinne Caudill




FB <3 TW <3 GR <3 SITE

Rebecca Caudill hates writing about herself in the third person but since that's how these things are typically done, she does so now under protest. Rebecca has always loved writing stories. When she won a writing contest in third grade (a 1000-word epic tale about her teddy bear Max), she announced to the world she would someday become an author. When she wasn't writing her own stories, she was sneaking copies of her mom's paperback romances to read late into the night. (Which, thinking back, was probably so not appropriate.) After graduating from the University of Pittsburgh in 2000 with a degree in Journalism, she embarked on a career in technology public relations in Silicon Valley, working for some of the country's hottest start-ups and publicly-traded companies. In 2014 she retired from corporate drudgery to write full time. Today Rebecca lives in Dublin, Ireland, with her husband. When not writing, she is exploring her new city and traveling across Europe searching for inspiration for her next story. (Hint: it involves travel and rugby.)





Lucky Star: A Hollywood Romance

What happens when two best friends who are secretly in love with each other hookup after one too many shots of tequila? For Sarah Travers and Cameron Scott, that drunken night nearly broke them. When cast as the lead in a major Hollywood blockbuster being directed by Sarah’s boss, Cameron must decide what’s more important – sticking by the woman he’s loved since the moment they first met or the bright lights and temptation that come with superstardom. Lucky Star is a story about friendship, love, and learning that Happily Ever Afters don’t only exist in the movies.  

Sarah 
When I met Cameron we hit it off like macaroni and cheese. Now we’re practically inseparable but I’ve been hiding the fact that I’m in love with him. Truly, madly, deeply. He finally figured it out and everything changed between us forever. That’s not my biggest problem though. You see, Cameron just landed the role of a lifetime and, despite how he feels about me, I’m worried I’m about to play second fiddle to the bright lights and temptations of Hollywood. 

Cameron 
I think I’ve loved Sarah since the first moment I laid eyes on her. It goes without saying she’s funny, smart, and has curves for days, but it’s more than that. She’s my light in this cynical, messed up world called Hollywood. I’d do anything to be with her, but I keep screwing up what should be easy. Now the studio is pressuring me to date my new co-star as part of a PR campaign and all I can think is maybe Sarah and I weren’t meant to be.

Claddagh Author Interview With A.V. Scott








Book Questions

Tell us your latest news?
Currently writing a romantic comedy. 
What book are you reading now?
 I try not to read books while writing my books. But, once I'm done writing my next book I plan on taking a break and catching up on some reading.

Your books are so emotional. How long does it take for you to be able to get the characters out of your mind and move on to the next?
For me, it's not difficult to switch from the minds of the characters I write about because they live in my head like a movie. I'm just the medium they use to have their story told.
Are the names of the characters in your novels important?
 Very important.
What are the most important attributes to remaining sane as a writer?
 Knowing when to step away from the computer and take a break. I think most writers want to hurry up and finish writing their first draft, but sometimes scenes can be difficult to write. Taking a break helps you to refocus.
What is the most demeaning thing said about you as a writer?
 I think when people assume you make thousands of dollars and can afford to give away print copies of your books to everyone. I don't mind the occasional giveaway or gifting a book to a friend, but when people assume authors can give their hard work for free it demeans our work.
How do you react to a bad review of one of your books?
 I don't read reviews.
What was the hardest part of writing your book?
 Writing the book.
Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it?
 Keep writing. Every day. No matter how hard it gets.

Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?
 No.
Have you ever read or seen yourself as a character in a book or a movie?
 No.

Describe in 5 words, your writing:
 Different. Exciting. Deep. Funny. Real.
What do you use to write your book?
 Scrivener
Do you listen to music while you write or read?
 Sometimes.

If you could write with any other author(s) who would it be and why?
 I don't necessarily like collaborations. 

NON- BOOK QUESTIONS

When you were a child what did you want to be when you grew up?
 A writer.
Did/Do you have a nickname?
 No.
What are your pet peeves?
Clutter. And, when my husband leaves dirty laundry next to the empty hamper. I mean, seriously?? It's right there!


What is your favourite coffee shop drink?
 Cappuccino 
What's your favourite tv show?
 On the rare occasion that I sit to watch tv, it's usually E! or those UFO shows. 

What is your favourite kind of cookie?

 chocolate chip

             If you were stranded on a deserted island, what three things would you have and why?

                  Blanket ( for sleeping), sunglasses and sunscreen.

                 Where would you go if you had a time machine?

 High School. There was so much I didn't take advantage of the fist time. 

            Which is your favorite quote?

 If I ever let my head hang low, it's to admire my shoes.

           If you were an ice cream what flavor would you be?

 Vanilla. 

What song best describes you?

She's a man-eater by Hall and Oats
