An Interview with Susan Carlisle
By Holly Hewson for The Romance Studio

HH: Susan, thank you for talking with us at TRS! Your featured book is NYC Angels: The Wallflower’s Secret and is part of the Medical Romance line Harlequin. What can you tell us about this special line and how this story came to be part of it?

SC: Medicalsare high drama stories that take place in any type of setting but more than that they are about the relationship between two people. Romance takes center stage, each ending ina happily-ever-after.The Wallflower's Secretis part of an eight book continuity that the editors at Mills and Boon developed. I was honor to be asked tobe included especially amoung the talented authors that fill out the group.

HH: What do you like best about Lucy and why will readers be cheering for her?

SC: Lucy is a quiet person, but she is iron rod strong when it comes to loving and caring for others. She has one of the biggest hearts of any of the characters I've written. She'd be someone I'd want in my corner if I was in trouble. And that is saying a lot.

HH: What do you like best about Ryan and why will readers love him?

SC: Ryan has a great sense of humor. It is hard not to like him. He is also devoted to his family to the point he took his younger sisters clothes shopping after their parents died. You have to like a guy who is willing to shop with his teenage sisters.

HH: What can you tell us about your other books for this line?

SC: I've written four other books for the medical line. Heart Surgeon, Hero...Husband?, The Nurse He Shouldn't Notice, Hot-Shot Comes to Town. Heart Surgeon takes place in a children's hospital in Atlanta.In The Nurse the reader goes to Ghana, West Africa and I make another turn setting Hot-Shot in West Tennessee. All were great fun to write.

HH: What do you enjoy about writing medical romances?

SC: I do, despite the fact that I don't really have any medical background outside of my son receiving a heart transplant. I was afraid that after my first book that I wouldn't find anything else to write about. I was sooo wrong. I've had no trouble coming up with stories.

HH: What else do you have in store for lucky readers?

SC: The book I know about takes place at Christmas and is called Snowbound with Dr. Delectable. The setting is a ski resort. Lots of room for romance with snow and cold.

HH: What do you enjoy most about being an author?

SC: Creating a story from nothing. Being surprised where the characters take me. It's always fun when that happens.

HH: How has your writing career changed since you started out?

SC: I'm making money. LOL Really, I guess the most change is the sound in some one's voice when they find out I'm a romance author. They are usually amazed and then impressed. That's gratifying.

HH: What do you think has been the most positive change?

SC: I've gotten to meet people that I wouldn't have known otherwise because of my writing. I have friends around the world now and that means a lot to me. Medicals is a warm family to be a member of.

HH: Where can readers find you online?

SC: I love to hear from my readers. They can find me at

HH: Thank you!
