Susan Mary Malone "I Just Came Here To Dance" An Interview with Susan Mary Malone by Jason E. Foss

                                                                               SUSAN MARY MALONE

                           "Great Authors can take a dream and write about it so well that the Reader feels that it was their own experience.  They use their enhanced imagination in each and every chapter so that it becomes the Readers reality until they put the Novel down and realize it was just a book.  Susan Mary Malone is one of those Great Authors.  She knows what will keep the Reader's attention.  Her unique and creative books are known to keep her Readers satisfied and she refuses to give them anything less.  She let us know what motivated her."

                                                                                               Jason E. Foss

Jason:                "What motivated you to write I Just Came Here To Dance?"


                            "It came to me in a dream—going up the huge hill and then being propelled down the rabbit hole into the quirky town of Sociable, Texas, where nothing is as it seems.  I dreamed the triangle of the town, the big dilapidated coliseum, and the eccentric woman who oversees the place in complete detail."

                             "I’d been studying myths and fairytales for a while (a passion of mine), with their underlying themes wrapped around a woman’s psyche, and it all just flowed almost faster than I could write it."

Jason:                  "What characteristic of Paula Anne can you relate to the most and why?"


                              "Paula Anne is, like most young women, trying to find her footing. Rather than seeking her own way, she’s chosen the life expected of her—the easy path—which of course leads one right into the unexamined life of far greater perils. Authenticity never crossed her mind—living day to day with a husband and son consumed her.  Until her world got blown smooth apart."

                              "I knew what that was like!"

                              "The process of hearing one’s intuition, learning to follow it, finding that internal touchstone, ah, yes, this was something I knew. It’s not a straightforward journey!"

Jason:                    "For your fans and book lovers, briefly describe I Just Came Here to Dance"


                                "Running from a painful reality, Paula Anne falls under the mythological yarns being spun on Diana (known as the White Witch of Sociable) Maclean's porch. There, the lines between storyteller and myth blur as they spring to life. But what does that have to do with her? Surely Paula Anne's own choices aren't to blame for the summer of insanity she spends under the spells of Diana...who is, after all, known as the White Witch of Sociable, Texas."

                                  "A modern allegory, the story waltzes atop the line between the creative and the crazy, the sacred and the maligned. Through myths it weaves together the multi-layers of personal self with that of the collective whole. And finally, Paula Anne and the townsfolk learn the simplest of truths: that the fire's ashes produce wisdom and courage, just as the stories say."

Jason:                       "Are you working on another book and if so what can you tell us about it?"


                                  "I’ve just finished a new novel. In the deep roots of a Texas vineyard, Like Water for Chocolate meets Chocolat (but with wine)."

                                  "Mysterious forces and puppet masters threaten Gwyn with financial ruin as she battles a family plot to seize her award-winning winery. While she and best-friend Ruth struggle to protect Gwyn’s immigrant adopted boy, as well as her vines and livelihood, they must satisfy a sheriff nosing around in her business, ICE agents sipping sweet-tea on her porch (even as they run down immigrant field hands), and magical chicanery springing up at the door. Must she risk the unveiling of long-buried skeletons to keep her dreams alive? Or will family and secrets ruin her life and those she loves?"

                                    "But as the angels accept their legendary share of wine during fermentation, they give in return the most precious gifts—hope, and the strength to fight family in order to save it."

Jason:                         "For those that want to read your book what is the easiest way to buy I just Came here to Dance?"


                                    "It can be purchased through the publisher, but as with all of life these days, Amazon is the easiest!"



                    "Susan Mary Malone was motivated by a dream that she had that took place in the town of Sociable Texas.  I love the fact that studying those myths and fairytales with their underlying themes wrapped around a women's psyche are a Passion of hers.  That word Passion is such an important word to look out for.  When someone has a passion for something they usually tend to put their all into it.  The very next thing she said was that everything else just flowed almost faster than she could write it!  That is what makes an amazing book.  She knows Texas.  She knows her main character so well and can relate to her.   The passion she wrote with shows in each page and will keep the Reader glued to this story.  Click on the link above and buy "I Just Came Here To Dance"."
