Interview with Sue Wilder, Author of The Girl in the Forest

20 Feb 2024

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write The Girl in the Forest?

The thrill of discovering a fantasy world hidden in the real world inspired this trilogy. The Girl in the Forest is book 2 in the trilogy.

What’s your favorite genre to read? Is it the same as your favorite genre to write?

I love fantasy, romance, thrillers, spy novels, mafia, historical… My favorite genre to write is romantasy.

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

First Lie Wins, The Vanished Days, and Sabotage.

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

If I had to choose, the action scenes, but the romance is a close second. And the dog. His scenes, and anyone who loves dogs will know why. (I’m sorry if you cry.)

Do you have any quirky writing habits? (lucky mugs, cats on laps, etc.)

Sticky notes are EVERYWHERE.

Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?

I like the dedication: For all the girls who would rather run with the wolves than do laundry… Go ahead and run.

If you could choose one thing for readers to remember after reading your book, what would it be?

The thrill.
