"Writing for me is a playground for the impossible.”
Navy veteran S. B. Alexander, also known to many as Susan, grew up playing and watching sports. But if you ask her what her favorite sport is, she’ll tell you hands down it’s baseball. She grew up collecting baseball cards, watching the Boston Red Sox, and playing the sport with the boys in her neighborhood, which was how her bestselling Maxwell series started—with a high school girl who plays boys’ baseball. While sports can be found in most of her books along with military heroes, you’ll also find suspense, family drama, angst, and romance.
Aside from her love for sports, you might find her devouring a bag of white powdered donuts and buying handbags like they’re going out of style. In fact, her husband calls her the bag lady. When she’s not writing, she’s a full-time caregiver to her soul mate of twenty years who got a bad deal in life when he was diagnosed with ALS. Their motto: “Life is too short to waste. So live every moment like it’s your last.”
"I write because the world needs more Happily Ever Afters."
Ann Omasta is a USA Today bestselling author.
Ann’s Top Ten list of likes, dislikes, and oddities:
1. I despise whipped cream. There, I admitted it in writing. Let the ridiculing begin.
2. Even though I have lived as far south as Key Largo, Florida, and as far north as Maine, I landed in the middle.
3. If I don't make a conscious effort not to, I will drink nothing but tea morning, noon, and night. Hot tea, sweet tea, green tea––I love it all.
4. There doesn't seem to be much in life that is better than coming home to a couple of big dogs who are overjoyed to see me. My other family members usually show significantly less enthusiasm about my return.
5. Singing in my bestest, loudest voice does not make my family put on their happy faces. This includes the big, loving dogs referenced above.
6. Yes, I am aware that bestest is not a word.
7. Dorothy was right. There's no place like home.
8. All of the numerous bottles in my shower must be lined up with their labels facing out. It makes me feel a little like Julia Roberts' mean husband from the movie Sleeping with the Enemy, but I can't seem to control this particular quirk.
9. I love, love, love finding a great bargain!
10. Did I mention that I hate whipped cream? It makes my stomach churn to look at it, touch it, smell it, or even think about it. Great––now I'm thinking about it. Ick!
