HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!
          	
          	This is the first Mother's Day without mine. My mother viewed much of the world with an artist’s eye. She loved long drives and found endless inspiration on country roads. Yesterday I took the most scenic route possible from our home in Houston to the cemetery in Texas Hill Country where she’s buried, and saw her artistic spirit at every turn. A rusty mailbox, its nameplate faded. An old barn, grey and weathered and threatening collapse. A pristine field, dotted with large round bales of hay. Acres of corn, planted in perfect rows. Rolling hills, bright and green from the recent rains. Abandoned tractors, baked from the elements. Old majestic oaks, shading newborn calves and their mommas. Miles and miles of Indian Paintbrush, carpeting the countryside. Springtime sunlight, skipping across a shallow pond. 
          	
          	The things we view for a split second and then forget are the things my mother stopped to photograph, study, and later paint. On this Mother’s Day, take time to observe, reflect, and honor those simple yet beautiful moments in your life. Mark them on your memory and etched them in your heart. If your mother is still with you, hold her close. If she’s in Heaven, hold her memory closer. God bless all the beautiful, selfless mothers - today and always.

I’m looking for a new romantic read. What’s your favorite work, so I can jump into something?

Happy Mother's Day weekend, to all the Wattpad moms out there! I hope you have a very special and relaxing day this Sunday! Let your family spoil you - you deserve it!
          
          This Sunday will mark the first Mother's Day without my mom. She passed last July from Covid. I will be traveling out of town to visit her gravesite this weekend, thus I will not be updating THE GUEST HOUSE Sunday night. I will try my best to update in the coming week. Thanks so much for your understanding.
          
          To those of you who have lost your mother, my heart and prayers are with you. 
          
          Blessings,
          Suzy

A question for my Wattpad friends:
          
          If you could invite any author, living or dead, to dinner, who would you select and why?
          
          For me, it's Judy Blume, hands down! No author has inspired me more or influenced my writing style the way she has. God bless you, Judy Blume! You made me fall in love with books from a very early age!

@Jojopo5 I follow Stephen King on Twitter and he is AWESOME! Smart, funny, WOKE, and just seems to be a very down-to-earth, amazing dude. Excellent choice!

*FRIENDLY REMINDER*
          
          Wattpad is NOT a dating site. 
          
          Repeat: NOT a dating site. 
          
          Once more for the gents who join Wattpad, immediately follow dozens of accounts (all women with real photos for their icons), and then instantly begin sending DMs: Please stop.

@SuzyEngland I had to change my profile picture because it was making me feel very uncomfortable. If I wanted to get hit on I would join a dating site..but since I'm married, I'll pass. I just wanna write my books and read. Is that so much to ask??

@voeuxstories It's getting ridiculous but it's happening a lot.  It's an automatic mute/delete as soon as I look at their profile.

@missbibliophile_20 It's happening more and more.

*ANNOUCEMENT*
          
          Friends, I will be updating my novel, Perfect, today. The story is the same, but I have changed the name of my female protag from Tessa to Rebecca. When I named my main characters, Tessa and Will, several years ago, I had no idea "Tessa" was the main character in the Infernal Devices triology, with "Will" being her love interest. This has created some confusion with readers, thus, I am making a change. Just wanted to give everyone a heads up.
          
          Thanks to all who have read this story - I appreciate all your lovely votes and kind comments!
