More About the Author

Once upon a time, I was born in a tiny Alabama town, Roanoke, not far from Harper Lee & Truman Capote's hometown. Right down the road from writer Rick Bragg, and a few hours from writer William Bradford Huie's home. Haven't you heard the love of writing and story-telling is in the drinking water in Alabama? It's rumored I'm a cousin of Capote and Huie, but that's no surprise since practically everybody in Alabama is related! Once when our daughter was a little girl, someone asked her what ethnicity we were, she replied "We're Southern!" How true!

Presently, I'm writing thrillers and gift books. Readers and reviewers say the thrillers scary . . .some say scarier than the movie, Psycho! WOW! One reviewer said our book THE REPLACEMENT has the most creative murder she's ever read! Where is Alfred Hitchcock when I need him? Thank you dear readers for allowing me to do what I love. The books also have romance woven throughout them. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoy writing them!

I have great memories of an idyllic childhood. My four best friends were named same as me, Susan---for real! My parents always worried that I exaggerated and I talked too much, but now since I now earn my living doing it, they laugh and say, "Oh my, doesn't the Lord have a sense of humor?" He transforms our weaknesses into our greatest strengths!

Blessings to all!

Format: Paperback
Much of the time, I have a 1000 to 2000 piece jigsaw puzzle spread out on the dining room table. At Christmastime all the family is home, and at least a dozen hands might be busy trying to put it together. My live-in-daughter and I, who work on it most, often vow that the pieces don't fit. One of us invariably says, "The company put the wrong pieces in this box." Eventually however, after painstaking concentration, trial and error, and determination to meet the challenge, we discover
pieces fit. Not only do they fit, but they form an even more beautiful picture than the box promised. On a larger scale, we might often view our lives like that. It's one gigantic puzzle and we don't know how to make the pieces fit. God promises us so much, and at times it seems either He or we got the wrong pieces in trying to make our lives work. Susan Wales, in her book STANDING ON THE PROMISES, presents us with some outstanding examples of people who felt they had opened God's book of promises, but somehow the pieces were missing or they just didn't fit. These pieces include distrust, danger, abortion, infertility, unwed mother, fear and numerous trials or seeingly-broken dreams that people face daily. Susan reminds us to stand on God's promises. The stories in this book are about those who have come to realize that God had a plan and a purpose, even though some didn't see the whole picture for decades later. This book reminds me of times when I could see no solution to a problem and I prayed, telling God that he promised if a person trains up a child in the way he should go, when he is old he will not depart from it. I claimed that promise and after many years experienced God's keeping His promise.

Format: Paperback
I was so blown away by STANDING IN THE PROMISES. I have read books by Susan Wales before that always made me feel good (Match Made in Heaven I & II), but this book renewed my strength when I was down. I was on a plane, weary after a long trip and her words made me laugh and cry. She covers every area of storm we as ladies go through in life--from singleness, marriage, infertility, motherhood, financial anxiety, and every crisis you can think of. She even convicted me to be a better wife when I thought I was already pretty good at that vocation! Ouch. And I was so inspired. I meant to read a chapter or two, but I couldn't put it down until I had read every page that same day. I can't say enough good things about this book. It's a MUST READ for every woman!
