Interview with Susan Coventry, Author of The Make-Up Test

05 Oct 2022

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write The Make-Up Test (Love Lessons Series #3)?

The Make-Up Test is a second chance romance, a trope that I love and I think readers enjoy.

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

My favorite genres to read are romance, historical fiction, and suspense.

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

As an avid reader, I have many books on my TBR list. A few are: Something Wilder, The Ways We Hide, and The Family Remains.

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

Some of my favorite scenes are when Paige, the heroine, is reminiscing about when she first fell for Brody, the hero. Who doesn’t remember their first love?!

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

My writing habits are methodical more than quirky. I do my best writing in the morning after I’ve had my coffee. I also prefer to write without background noise. The fewer distractions the better.

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

I’ve always liked the philosophy: Slow and steady wins the race. I’d rather take my time and get the job done right than rush through it and make mistakes.

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

If my book makes the reader smile or laugh, I’m happy. And of course, I hope they’ll come back for more!
