About Susan Carlisle
Susan Carlisle’s love affair with books began when she made a bad grade in math in the sixth grade. Not allowed to watch TV until she brought the grade up, Susan filled her time with books. She turned her love of reading into a love of writing romance. If the hero is a smart, sexy and sinfully rich alpha male, he can be found in her books along with a strong heroine that captures the hero’s heart.
She’s been a high school substitute teacher for all most twenty years and that... is another bio. Susan lives near Atlanta, Georgia with her husband of thirty years and has four grown children. Her youngest son received a heart transplant. As a member of the successful group blog Petit Fours and Hot Tamales www.petitfoursandhottamales.com she makes monthly posts.
Susan loves castles, traveling, cross-stitching and reads voraciously. Visit her at www.SusanCarlisle.com

An Interview with the Susan Carlisle
By Holly Hewson for The Romance Studio
HH: Thank you for talking with us at TRS. Your featured book is The Nurse He Shouldn't Notice. Where did you get the idea for this emotionally-engaging story?
SC: I pulled the idea from some friends that were medical missionaries in Ghana, West Africa.They have retired now but provided medical care to a remote area of Ghana for over twenty five years.
HH: What do you like best about Maggie and why do you think readers will relate to her?
SC: Maggie is strong and knows her own mind but has a marshmallow heart for people in need.
HH: What do you like best about Dr. Armstrong and why will readers love him?
SC: Court is everyone's idea of the dashing doctor raised with a silver spoon but he is also in pain and only Maggie is able to make him see it.
HH: What makes your characters unique?
SC: Maggie is the type of person at is willing to live in almost primitive conditions to help others. She's believes in self-sacrifice. Court loves kids and caring for them but most of all he is welling to give up all he has known for the woman he loves.
HH: What makes your story stand out amongst fierce competition?
SC: It is emotional and the setting is unusual but most of all the characters are likable.

SC: I want to publish two more nonfiction books and keep writing for Harlequin.
HH: What do you enjoy reading?
SC: Medicals, Presents, Historicals and just about anything where I learn something.
HH: What are you most looking forward to before the year's end?
SC: I will be a grandmother for the first time to - twins! That is even better than writing books.
HH: Thank you!
