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 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…

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 wri…
