A glass of water with Susan Sands




Today I’m chatting with the lovely author Susan Sands over a glass of water! Her new Christmas romance (Tule Publishing), Noel Alabama is out!







A. Quickies

  1. Tea or wine? (what brand/type/cultivar) 

Neither, sadly. I have migraines and wine is a killer. Tea has never been my “cup of tea” unless I have a cold.  I drink a lot of water and lemonade and such. No fun at all, I’m afraid.

  • Read or jog?

Read and tennis

  • Cats or dogs?

Dogs, unless I get rid of my allergic husband of thirty-plus years :-/

  • Heels or flats?

Flats all the way

  • Boxers or briefs? 


  • Milk, dark or white chocolate

Dark chocolate, please

  • Sweet or savoury

Savoury then sweet

  • Sea or mountains


B. Five likes and five dislikes 

Likes: 1) Kindness 2) Music of almost every genre 3) Good food 4) Dogs/animals 

5) Books

Dislikes: 1) Nastiness 2) Politics 3) Loud noise 4) Bad smells 5) Rude people

C. Three things on your bucket list

1) Travel abroad 

2) Publishing goals

3) Grandchildren

D. What triggered this specific story?

Bailey and Seth’s story is a combination of her coming home but on her own terms. I grew up in a small town that I never really seemed part of, though I loved all the people and the place. Bailey’s square-peg-in-a-round-hole feeling only worked itself out when she took matters in her own hands. It’s hard to feel different in your hometown. I relate.


Bailey Boone wasn’t like the other girls in Ministry, Alabama. Her creative soul drove her from home—and Seth McKay—at eighteen. Now she’s home with a film crew to save her current Christmas project—and maybe get that promotion. But will Seth, her ghost of Christmas past, give her a reason to stay?
