The One-Link Lowdown on...Suzanne Brandyn!

My guest today is Suzanne Brandyn. Born in rural Australia and having travelled widely in her beautiful and diverse homeland, Suzanne has experienced pretty much all that fine country has to offer.  She now brings it to you in in all its forms in her wonderful contemporary romance and romantic suspense novels.  Be prepared for beautiful beaches, dramatic coastlines, glamorous cities – and the hot breath of the wild red outback.  Her latest release is the romantic suspense, Forgotten Memories, published by Eternal Press.  Welcome, Suzanne!

What’s the naughtiest thing you've ever done? 
Shot an arrow between my younger brother's legs. Lol. Lol. Thank heavens I didn't miss. My mother went berserk.  

What’s on your bedside table/nightstand? 
My ipad, a lamp, and I'll leave that last one up to your imagination. :)

Which household chore would you happily give up forever?
All of it. Hate, hate housework. But one would be ironing. It's so boring.

Agreed!  You're talking to a person who purposely buys fabrics that rarely need ironing! ;-)  Suzanne, who would you invite to your ultimate fantasy dinner party?  
Really who would I invite. *sighs* It would have to be Hugh Jackman. He's like, so so um.... I'd drop to his feet in a whisper. :) Shush, don't tell my hubby. :)

What talent or skill would you love to have that you don’t have now?
I can dance pretty well, it's the singing voice that sounds like an old toad on its way to death. I don't sing. Lol

What drives you seriously nuts?
Bad Posture.

You're given a time travel machine - where would you go, and why?
Oh wow, what a present. I'd go everywhere, but to choose one, I'd go back into the western days, where women wore long dress, frilly bits and pieces. It would be nice to wear this type of dress, but perhaps I couldn't sit around and sigh for too long. I'd have to be Annie Oakley. Lol.

A rebel!  Quite right!  Tell me - what’s the best review you've ever had?
Suzanne Brandyn paints wonderful word portraits of Michele and Jacqueline with beauty and sexuality plus shining through. Her description of the island creates a place that is both enchanting and terrifying depending on the circumstance. (from Long and Short Reviews. ) 

What's your guilty pleasure?
I have a glass of wine with my meal. But secretly I have a glass about four o'clock if I'm home. I just love sitting out the back on the balcony taking in the view of the mountains, and listening to the roar of the ocean. It' s truly paradise.

We need those moments, don't we?  Good for the soul.  Aside from writing achievements, family, etc - what are you most proud of?
Being a survivor. I was abducted once. It was pretty bad. I don't like to go into the details but I survived. :)  I am a survivor. Yah!!!
