Welcome to episode 47 of the Stories to Love podcast. Today's guest is author Susan Crispell.
Susan Bishop Crispell earned a BFA in creative writing from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. Born and raised in the mountains of Tennessee, she now lives twenty minutes from the beach in North Carolina with her husband and their two cats, Whisky and Peat. She is very fond of baked goods and is always on the lookout for hints of magic in the real world. Susan is the author of women's fiction novels The Secret Ingredient of Wishes (Sep 2016, Thomas Dunne Books/St. Martin's Press) and Dreaming in Chocolate (Feb 2018, St. Martin's Griffin), which was selected as a SIBA Okra pick Winter 2018, and the young adult novel The Holloway Girls (June 2022, Sourcebooks Fire).
In this episode, Susan and I chat about the power of the kiss, of choosing who to kiss and when, inaction vs. action, and her move into YA fiction. We also recapped her amazing writer’s retreat in a castle, and shared our good luck charms.
