Happy Book Lover’s Day!!!

Today is the perfect day to celebrate all things book related! Today is also the perfect day to start a reading challenge. I started this day by finishing a book (Everything, Everything) in the wee morning hours. And tonight, I am starting the first book (1984) on the Rory Gilmore Challenge. Don’t you just love a day that begins and ends with a book?

How did you celebrate National Book Lover’s Day?

Enjoy!

Interview:

Hi Susan,
Thank you very much for participating in today’s interview. Congratulations on the release of Lowcountry Bonfire!

Please tell everyone here a little bit about yourself and your work.

Hey everyone! I’m Susan Boyer, and I write the Liz Talbot Mystery Series. I’m originally from North Carolina, but have lived in South Carolina for nearly thirty years. I’ve had a lifelong love affair with books, mysteries in particular. But before I wrote them, my day job was in computer business systems. My husband, Jim, and I have four grown children. We live in the Upstate of South Carolina, but spend a good bit of time in the Lowcountry, near Charleston.

What inspired you to become an author?

My love of books and my overactive imagination.

Do you have a favorite book, out of the Liz Talbot series?

It’s always the most recent one, I guess because I’m closest to it. So, for the moment, it’s Lowcountry Bonfire.
