I feel I was put here on earth to do the little things. Things you could do without, but they're also things that add so much to life. Linda, a reader at the book club, suggests another way to describe the "little things" in life.
"Suzanne, I love the language and context of your columns. It hits home. I thought this would be a great title for your novel, 'Do you want sprinkles on that?' Of course that's what the ice cream shop [person] asks when you order the most scrumptious sundae or, for me, an ice cream soda with whipped cream, sprinkles, a cherry and a long spoon.
How does that relate to your writing...? We all strive for special pleasures and privileges in life, each desired sprinkle is unique to the individual, however others often share the same desires. Something that binds and separates our human natures. So how often do we get those sprinkles? In your writing, the sprinkles must be treasured as rare events in our complicated, somewhat combative, competitive lives. And...sometimes the sprinkles start out sour and end up sweet. Thanks for your writing. Short and sweet, your sprinkles often grab the heart."--Linda

AUTHORBUZZ: AVENGED: A MacKenzie Family Novel (Fiction) by Jay Crownover
I've been dying to do a series mashup between the saints in Denver and the sinners in the Point for a long time. This was the perfect opportunity to do that. Throw in some sexy MacKenzies on top of it and you have a hot, irresistible time lost deep in the heart of Surrender. I always knew I was going to give Echo a story when she first appeared in Built. Benny, well he took me by surprise. But if anyone was going to get out of the Point alive it was going to be him.
