With over 30 published books, Susan Lewis is a master-storyteller that moves through genres, styles and stories as easily as turning a page. She's lived all around the world, getting inspiration from towns in France (where she had a love affair with one of the FBI's Most Wanted) to hills in LA (where she was neighbours with George Clooney)
Her new novel, 'One Minute Later', tells the story of Viv Shager, who on her 35th birthday suffers a heart attack which causes her life to change dramatically. Her life shrinks back to how it begun, she moves back home, and with time running out - decides to finally uncover one mysterious secret.
Susan isn't much of a planner, gets consumed by her stories and publishes two novels a year. We talk about the pressure that heaps on an author's shoulders, and how she keeps up with it all, and still finds joy in words.
