August 21 Program

When the Dog Eats Your Manuscript, or Working Through Life’s Disasters

Life sometimes throws us curves. Often writers have a difficult time adjusting when their plans have to be changed. This workshop is about how to stay focus, how to move forward and meet goals despite what is going on around you. 


Susan Carlisle’s love affair with books began when she made a bad grade in math in the sixth grade. Not allowed to watch TV until she brought the grade up, Susan filled her time with books. She turned her love of reading into a love of writing. Susan has released through HarperCollins’s Harlequin medical imprint over thirty contemporary romances. Her Modern Masters of Their Castles trilogy is under her own imprint. Her steamy stories have strong heroes with the vibrant women who challenge them.

Her traditionally published nonfiction book Nick’s New Heart 30 Years and Counting came out on March 2021, under Susan May. It is about her son’s heart transplant experience. The second, a historical biography A WWII Flight Surgeon’s Story was released by Pelican Publishing under the author name S. Carlisle May.
