These are some of Susan Furlong’s books:
Lindas Book Obsession Interviews Susan Furlong1. What motivates you or inspires you to write your stories?Writing, for me, is a way to make sense of the world. I tend tobe a bit of a loner, always watching and observing and trying tounderstand what motivates peoples’ actions. The humanimpulses and decisions that arise from conflict fascinate me. Iwrite flawed characters who struggle to make moral decisions.2. What are your goals or hopes for your readers to take awayafter reading your stories?I strive to create memorable characters who captivate and staywith my readers long after the story is finished.3. Do you ever base any of your characters on significantpeople or acquaintances that you know?I pull traits from those around me: a strange quirk from thegrocery check-out guy; a certain gesture from a friend; a figureof speech from a neighbor … but I never put an ‘actual’ personin one of my stories. But it’s tempting, because a lot of people Iknow would make intriguing characters.4. What are some of your hobbies or interests in your downtimethat you like to do? (crafts, animals, gardening, etc.)In the summer, it’s all about spending time outside with myfamily: hiking, fishing, gardening, kayaking. In the winter, wespend the weekends working puzzles and binge-watchingmovies. I’m active in my church and I also like marital arts andtarget shooting. I’m working on a marksman certificate.5. Do you have some new books in the works, and if so canyou tell us a little about what to expect?FRACTURED TRUTH, is set to release later this year. It’s thesecond of the Bone Gap Travellers series and goes deeper anddarker than the first. I think it’s my strongest novel to date. I’mcurrently working on the third book in that series and writing astandalone thriller.6. What are your favorite genres of books?Mysteries of any type, from hardboiled to cozy.
