Introduction

Writers are always asked “why do you write?” and we always have a variation of different answers: it’s therapeutic, we’re good at making up stories, we want to share our experiences with the world, we want to help people, or even it’s just something we’re good at. Either way, it gives us a good feeling, and that what makes us keep doing it. It’s even better when that good feeling is transferred to our readers.

The way that books change us as readers, our books can also affect our readers. Author Sue Girard has experienced this positive reaction of her books from her readers, serving a therapeutic as well as entertaining purpose. Check out her interview below along with links to buy her books.

The Interview

  1. How many books have you written and where can you buy them?

I have one published book at this time. In the Light of the Full Cold Moon. It is Volume 1 in a 3 book series called The Moon Sage Theosophies. I am currently writing a non-fiction book and a book of Poetry. So three books on the go and one already published.

2. What famous books can you compare to your own?

My book has been compared to The Divide Trilogy by Elizabeth Kay, to The Shack by Wm. Paul Young, to The Duchess of Newcastle by Margaret Cavendish and The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis.

3. Why do you write for this particular age group?

The age group is fairly open and I have had readers from 10 – 95. It has something appealing for all ages and speaks to many different cultures, races, religions and age groups.

4. How autobiographical are your books?

This book definitely draws from personal experience and so is somewhat autobiographical. When you read the Prologue you will get a good indication how this speculative fiction began with my own personal story.

5. What’s the best compliment that you’ve ever received about your writing?

The best compliment I have received from a reader was “This book literally saved my life!”

6. What has been your greatest moment as a writer so far?

I have been a writer since I was a little girl, starting with poems and song lyrics. Then I ventured into short stories and now a published novel. The journey to wellness that I took during the year of writing this book was a magical mystical adventure for this Author.

7. Where do you get your covers?

The first cover came from a stock photo that I found that just completely spoke to me of the vision of the forest that I could see in a meditative state...it evoked the Title as well. Volume 2’s cover is in the works and the book is currently called Becoming LionHeart so the image is formulating quite beautifully. Savannah becomes LionHeart. And so she should!

8. Who is your biggest fan?

Well, Goddesses kind of like my work, but my biggest fans, (yes I have 3), are a lovely lady that lives on the East Coast of Canada, who truly believes in me as a Writer and swears that my book has healing properties (she even takes it with her to the dentist) lol..., a wonderful lady who lives here on the Coast who is so supportive of my writing and can’t wait for book 2 in the Series and my amazing and loving Sister who edits my work.

9. What is next for you?

Next for me is of course book 2 in the Series but I am simultaneously writing my auto-biographical works which will cover a 50 year span, and is very revealing with many twists, unexpected turns and surprises; a riveting, spellbinding read and I am going to publish my book of poetry as well. So, right now I am doing a ‘juggling act’ which is very akin to my nature as a multi-tasking personality. Don’t worry I can handle it...

10. End with a quote (from one of your books, a favorite quote by someone else, or one that has been on your mind recently).

I will end with a quote from one of my dearest Mentors on this life journey, Maya Angelou, who I consider a dear Earth Mother. A Wise and Gentle Sage. I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”


Therefore, I try to conduct myself at all times as though I have been blessed with a gift to always make people feel good about themselves and about their Earth contribution and about the interaction that we have as Human Beings with one another, no matter what their position, situation or circumstances in this life.

      Great interview Laura Smith. Loved the short and flat-out answers, something that's been tough for me to work around with my own interviews.
