Unwrapping an Interview with Susan Fisher-Davis, author of GABE, book 2 in the Men of Clifton Montana series

I’m so very excited this day because not only do I have one of my favorite editorial clients and recent debut author with her first book, JAKE, visiting with me today, but Susan Fisher-Davis’s second book in her Men of Clifton Montana series, GABE, is now available for your most enjoyable reading too. Before Susan joins us, please check out GABE. He and Emma are perfect for each other, whether they like it or not. J

Blurb for GABE:

Gabe Stone can’t get Emma Conner out of his mind, even though he knows she’s not the kind of woman to settle for a fling. Having known Emma all her life, he never noticed how grown up she’d become - until now.

Emma has been in love with Gabe forever. When he finally shows her the attention she’s always hoped for, she falls even deeper in love with him, and soon discovers she’s pregnant. Gabe does right by her. He marries her, and eagerly awaits their baby, but Emma can’t help but wonder if he will ever love her or only the baby?

When danger revisits Clifton, Montana, Gabe discovers the heart can hold a lot of love. But he wonders if he can convince Emma his love is real. And if he succeeds, will she love him in return?

Now please join me in welcoming Susan Fisher-Davis, author of the newly released, GABE, book 2 in the Men of Clifton Montana series, to Unwrapping Romance … 

Amy:  Welcome Susan, and may I say, Happy Release Day! It's an absolute delight to have you with us today, and thank you for taking time out of your busy and most exciting day to join us.  

Perhaps you'd like to tell us a little bit about yourself for those who don't know you yet. 

Susan:  Thank you for having me, Amy. I'm married with two children and originally from Cumberland, Maryland - a small town in the western part of MD, up in the mountains. We moved to Nashville, TN in 1996 with our children. I love to go fishing, hunting, taking drives down old country back roads, and I'm a huge NHL fan. I love the Nashville Predators.

Amy:  Outdoor activities can inspire all kinds of interesting ideas. Susan, JAKE, book 1 in the Men of Clifton Montana series was your debut novel and having read it, I can say it was a fabulous way to debut your writing talent. So what inspired your creation of Clifton, Montana and the characters we meet there? 

Susan:  I've always loved sexy cowboys. I'm really not sure why, other than they definitely can fill out a pair of jeans. Have you ever watched a rodeo? JAKE just popped in my head one day and I put him to paper. The rest soon followed. Small towns are the best. No hustle bustle going on, just a slow, laid back feeling.

Amy: Well, I can certainly agree with you about the sex appeal of cowboys. Yours are definitely sexy, so if you had to choose one for yourself, which would it be, Jake or Gabe?

Susan:  Very tough question to answer. I fall in love with all my characters, one at a time. Jake has a little bit of an advantage since he was my first hero. But Gabe has this great sense of humor and he's such a flirt. I don't think I could ever really choose between them if I had to. I imagine it will just get worse the more men I write about.

Amy:  I suppose it’s like they say, “you never forget your first.” The Men of Clifton Montana are sexy, strong, and ready to take on the amazing women who fall in love with them. How far do you see this series going, and do you have anything else in the works?

Susan:  The Men of Clifton Montana is a series of eight men and women. I do have another series starting in January 2015 entitled The Bad Boys of Dry River. It's a series of six men and women.

Amy:  How exciting? Bad Boys are always welcomed well by romance readers. Speaking of which, I know you're a prolific reader as well as writer.  Who are your favorite authors and have any of them influenced your writing?

Susan:  I love anything Linda Lael Miller and Joan Johnston write. I believe it's where my love of cowboys started. Both women influenced me to at least give it a try.

Amy:  I do agree my own fascination with cowboys began with Linda Lael Miller as well as some of Johanna Lindsey’s early romances. My last question for you and my personal favorite:  If you could be ANY character in ANY book (not necessarily your own), who would it be and why? 

Susan:  I'd be Olivia Roberts in my Men of Clifton Montana series. She's headstrong, says what she thinks, and doesn't back down. I see myself in her as I'm the same way. But she's also vulnerable. She can get her feelings hurt the same as any of us can. She's been through a lot but gets back up any time she's knocked down. I admire her for her strength.

Amy:  We meet Olivia in JAKE, and then she is an even more prevalent secondary character in GABE, will she be getting her HEA, I hope?

Susan: Oh, yes. Olivia will get her cowboy but it’s not going to be easy. She’s had her eye on him from the start and never being one to be afraid of expressing her feelings, she lets him know how she feels but he’s hard to get and he’s not playing.

Amy:  It might not be anytime soon, but Olivia will get her man, or rather her cowboy! Susan, thank you so very much for joining us today, it’s been a lot of fun. Thank you for sharing JAKE and GABE with us. Congratulations on the release of GABE, and your new series. I’m sure my readers are as excited as I am to read more. 

Susan:  Thank you so much for this, Amy. I certainly appreciate it and you.

Amy: You’re very welcome, Susan, and always welcome back here at Unwrapping Romance.

Thank you, my darling readers for making her welcome and I hope you read her wonderful Men of Clifton Montana series from Secret Cravings Publishing.

About the Author: From Susan Fisher-Davis –
I've been writing for years but I never thought my stories were good enough to get published. I had actually given up writing for a year when I decided to give it another try. Through Facebook, I met Amy Valentini, an editor. We became friends and once I completed my book, I sent it to her for editing. I believe that without her, I wouldn't have gotten a contract. I submitted my manuscript to five publishing houses and three wanted it. After a few days, I decided to go with Secret Cravings Publishing. This company is amazing. The owner, Sandy Lea Sullivan has the patience of a Saint. I ask her so many questions, I'm surprised she hasn't blocked my email. I always get the same answer from her when I apologize for bothering her, "It's what I'm here for." Amazing! I have a three-year contract with them and if at all possible, I will stay with them after that.

I have two series coming out. The Men of Clifton, Montana and The Bad Boys of Dry River. Cowboys and bad boys...what more could a woman want? I hope you enjoy my books. The Bad Boys of Dry River will begin in January 2015.

Happy Reading Everyone!

GABE, a Men of Clifton Montana novel by Susan Fisher-Davis, Secret Cravings Publishing, available now in ebook formats at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobobooks, and Smashwords.
