About Susan Leigh Carlton



Susan lives in a gated community just outside Tomball, Texas with her husband, two toy poodles and Lissie the cat.. 


Not Quite A Mail Order Bride is her latest book to be published by Amazon.  She says, “This is my favorite of all the books I have written. It’s the same with all of them.  The latest is the favorite.   I tend to be a friend of my characters, talking to them and listening to them
800 Bering Drive, Suite 305 Houston, TX 7705
  I also tend to be emotional and found myself becoming choked up while I was writing the scene where Martha hugged her new sons immediately after the wedding ceremony.


She also monitors all of the reviews and comments.  She says “I revise my writing process and style accordingly.  This is a learning process for me and I love every bit of it.”


The names of all her books are on the pages following this one.


She says, “My thanks to you readers.  I appreciate your taking the time to read them.  As an avid reader myself, I will read several books during the time I am writing.  Our kids love to read as does my husband.  He takes his iPad with him everywhere and reads during waits for the doctor.


Thanks again.  Now I can begin research on my next effort.  If you have suggestions for additional books, I would love to hear them.  Email them to me or enter them as comments on the website.”
