Today I welcome Suzie T. Roos to my blog to discuss her recent Young Adult release, Girl Divided Two, the follow-up to Girl Spoken For.

SuzieTRoos_GirlDividedTwoLife was supposed to get easier…

At least that’s what Tatum had hoped. New school year, great boyfriend…and things with her and Zach were supposed to be wonderful. Fairy tale wonderful.

They aren’t.

Zach’s overbearing family controls his every move—and worse, they want to control Tatum. Now Zach is pressuring her to ‘speak for him’, which means she’ll not only be committed to him but also his mob family.  Where’s the guy she fell in love with? To make matters worse, her friends introduce her to Nigel, the new guy who is more tempting than Tatum wishes.

So which will Tatum give in to…coercion or temptation?

Why do I write YA and the inspiration for the Spoken For series?

It’s rather simple, the genre and inspiration fell in my lap.

The year my oldest child, my daughter, went off to college, I didn’t mope around. I didn’t feel sad that she was “gone”. I was exhilarated. Relieved. Having a child at the determined age of sixteen years, I dreamt of the day she went to college. Because I never got to. I made my bed. I was damn well lying it in.

After she left for college I felt compelled to write a simple story about how hard it is to be a teenage mom. That was my initial goal. Nothing more. Once I began, the words and a story came spilling out. Maybe I had more than a simple story. The subject matter and my life experiences combined with a lot of imagination was the perfect recipe for my Spoken For series!
