Welcome author Susan M. Baganz

Tell us about you.

Do you play music while you write? If so, what's your favorite? Most of the time I write in silence. Other times instrumental jazz or classical (especially if I'm writing historical) will be on in the background. For a few novels I was listen to Burlap to Cashmere as they inspired two books. If I'm writing outside the sounds of the birds. It kind of depends on my mood.

What's my pet peeve? People who are chronically late. And too many wrinkles in the top sheet when I get into bed. It doesn't need to be ironed–just smoothed out!

Does anyone in your family read your books? My mom and sister sometimes do and possibly others I'm not aware of. My kids? No, although I hope someday my daughter will. My husband isn't a reader but he's listened to the audio books for the Black Diamond Gothic Regency series and loved them.

Do you have any other writers in your family? Yes! My paternal grandfather, James B. Pollard was an amazing writer and I was honored to type up his writings from WWII after his death and publish them in a little book called: Journey to Lekhipani: A G.I.'s Experiences in WWII. it is even in a national Army library.

My step-grandfather, Earl K. Wichern wrote and published a book called Life on the Slow Track: A True Adventure Story, which details how he and some friends rode bicycles from Wisconsin to the World Fair in New York, singing their way across the country and doing chores to earn money and eat. Definitely something you couldn't do now.

My second paternal cousin once removed, Richard S. Brown, wrote and published a historical crime thriller called Going off the Rails. I haven't had a chance to read it yet.

Tell us your name and a little bit about yourself
I'm Lucas Spanning, a widower. My wife died of cancer seven years ago shortly after our wedding. Over the past few years I've grown a successful real estate company. I'm a loyal friend.
Where do you live, and why do you choose to live there?
Montana. i love it here.
Who chronicled your story, and why do you think he/she picked you?
I was a minor character in Whitney's Vow, and an editor loved me and wanted me to have my own romance. Thankfully, Susan agreed to give me a happily-ever-after at Christmas.
What obstacles did you overcome in order to reach your happily-ever-after?
Earning Shelby's trust was difficult as I am in the same business her ex-husband was in. He was deceitful, and it was hard for her to believe I had more noble ethics and that I would keep her, and her daughter, safe.
Tell us about your special romantic interest. What makes them so special?
Shelby has a quiet dignity about her and she's a great mom. She's sacrificed a lot to keep her daughter safe and to see a bad man brought to justice.

The first time you saw your special person, what did you think? Was it love at first sight or did they have to grow on you?
She was cute and intriguing. We disagreed about Santa and it was her daughter Tabitha who schooled me and challenged me about the true meaning of Christmas. She grew on my quickly.
