Magazine Interview: Susan Grant talks about defeating the power of “No”

The magazine SEARCH interviewed me, and I wanted to share it with you. As someone who’s heard the words “You can’t,” “You won’t,” and “No” many times in my life, I am glad to have the opportunity to chat about how to defeat the power of the naysayers, in hopes of inspiring women of any age that anything can be possible. Emerian was a wonderful interviewer.

SUSAN GRANT INTERVIEW

 

 

Susan Grant talks Pets...in Space

I recently did an interview with the PETS IN SPACE 2 gang:

Why did you join the Pets in Space 2 anthology?

It’s not too often you have the chance to do a project with authors whose books you love and at the same time support a favorite organization. As a veteran myself, I feel that what Hero Dogs is doing to help veterans is so important. As a pet lover, I know the special bond between humans and animals can heal the deepest wounds. And, as an author, I could not pass up the chance to write about that special bond.

If you could bring back one extinct animal, what would it be, and why?

The wooly mammoth. It must have been so magnificent and awe-inspiring to see, and yet it’s not as scary and dangerous as a pterodactyl, which would have been my second choice.

If you could create/design an animal, what would it look like and what could it do? 

It would be just like my fun, smart, adorable, affectionate border collie, Skye, but she could talk. We already do everything together, and the only thing missing are the words I sense are right there on her lips.

What do you love about writing science fiction romance?

I love writing SFR because of the almost total lack of boundaries. Anything goes. I love the adventure, the Wild West type of frontier feel, the fantasy aspect. Strong, independent characters. The genre lets my imagination run wild. I can make up anything. I love that. One of my favorite themes is “fish out of water”. In my science fiction worlds I put my characters in those types of situations. Maybe it’s how I feel sometimes when I am walking around in a foreign country on a layover as a commercial airline pilot. A fish out of water, but also full of curiosity and wonder.

ABOUT The Prince, the Pilot, and the Puppy (A novella in The Star Series world) by Susan Grant 

Trysh joined the Space Forces with the secret hope that her absentee father might notice her accomplishments and acknowledge her. At the top of her game as a starfighter pilot, the last thing she needs is a way too charming prince to get in her way. Trysh had learned at a young age what happened when a person lost their heart to someone above their social class – it led to heartache.

Prince Rornn feels fortunate he can pursue his passion both in the air and on the ground. He decides being third in line for the throne definitely has its advantages – it allowed him to join the Space Forces as a top-gun starfighter pilot. What he doesn’t expect is to find a woman there who not only competes with him – she completes him!

Everything Rornn tries appears to push Trysh further away – that is until they rescue a tiny, starving yipwag pup on the surface of an alien world. It turns out that “Puppy” is as good at sniffing out terrorists as she is at helping her two clueless humans figure out that they need each other as much as they do her.

Can Rornn convince Trysh that he is nothing like her father and that she is just the right woman for him before the terrorists discover their furry little companion?
