Interview with Susan Amond Todd, Author of Life’s Fortune

05 May 2022

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write Life’s Fortune?

I wanted to show how the ordinary woman is truly extraordinary.

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

I like reading Women’s Fiction, the same genre I write.

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

I’m not doing much reading right now because I’m busy writing Life’s Surprises, the second of four books in the Life Series. But my favorite authors are Anne Perry, Anne Rivers Siddons, Karen White, and of course Jane Austin.

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

When my main character, Rebekah, finds her mother’s recipe box.

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

I drink lots of tea.

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

I have a philosophy that you should pick an age and stay there. I’ve picked 25.

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

Life is full of surprises, twists, and turns that help steer us on the path we need to travel.
