Tell us a bit about yourself
My name is Susan Hayes and I’ve been a published author since 2012 with more than forty-five books released. I live on the Canadian west coast and have lived within a few miles of the ocean for my entire life. I’ve got blue hair, more tattoos than my mother cares to acknowledge, and a life I love.
Have you always wanted to become an author?
Always. Somewhere in the pages of my high school yearbook, when I was asked what my goals were: one of them was “write a book that would one day be taught in schools. While I’m quite certain my sci-fi romances will never be part of anyone’s school curriculum, I certainly have achieved the first part of that goal.
What are you working on now?
Operation Fury, book three in my Sci-fi suspense series – Nova Force. It will be out in March.
Do you have any quirks while writing?
I find it really difficult to write if it’s too quiet. I have to have some noise. 80’s music, white noise, or something that evokes the setting I’m writing in. (I even found a website that has the noise of the Star Trek engines, love that one.)
What are your hopes for the future?
I have just recently become a full-time writer, so for the moment my hopes are that I can continue to support myself purely by writing, and spend the rest of my life doing what I love.
Do you have anything to say to your readers?
To anyone who has bought one of my books, thank you!
Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?
The best bit of advice I was given was to keep your eyes on your own paper. Don’t compare your journey to a writer to anyone else’s, because it won’t be the same. Do what works for you, and don’t give up.
Blurb for Operation Fury :
She’s fighting for survival. He’s fighting for her soul.
Nyx was created to be the perfect killer, with death and violence encoded in her DNA. After years of tests, torments, and trials designed to push her to her breaking point, she’s survived by focusing on one thing –revenge.
Nova Force investigator Eric Erben lost someone he cared about. Now he’s on a mission to fulfill her last request – free her sister from the shadowy group holding her captive. Rescuing Nyx from her captors is the easy part. Saving her from herself will be a battle only love can win.
