Good morning! It's a beautiful sunny beginning to the day here in Western, Pennsylvania. I'm working on my 51st book for Harlequin. 51st! I'm very excited about that. I've written some fun things ... those are the Silhouette Romance titles. I especially liked SNOWBOUND BABY which was book 3 of the Bryant Baby Bonanza series which also included BABY BEFORE BUSINESS and PRINCE BABY. But my favorites for Silhouette where the books of the Brewster Baby Boom series THE BABY BEQUEST, BRINGING UP BABIES and OH, BABIES! Where three bachelors inherit triplets. Those were fun to write. I go back every now and again and read them myself for a laugh! And speaking of triplets, my May release A FATHER FOR HER TRIPLETS, has the most adorable 3-year-olds ever! My Harlequins are a little (sometimes a lot) more serious than my Silhouettes, but I always deliver a heart warming story that reminds readers that family and love go hand in hand. Sexy or sweet, funny or sad, my characters make some serious lemonade out of their lemons! :) Because that's how I see life. I have three kids...one of whom has epilepsy. Raising him taught me (and my husband and our other two kids) that sometimes a situation that seems bad can have its blessings. Also, being raised in a family of 11 kids (yes, 11) I learned a lot about sharing and how love encompasses more than just romance. Which isn't to say my books aren't romantic! LOL The best thing in life is romantic love. Being treasured, respected and wanted. So join me this week or weekend...see my sometimes wacky, sometimes heart-rending vision of real love! susan meier...Oh... And if you're looking to see a bit more about my books and even sample a short story go to ... susanmeier.com

Re: A Father For Her Triplets (11:47am August 7, 2013):

I agree with those who said it's a continual work in progress! I think all of life is.

And I genuinely believe the best path to happiness is gratitude -- taking what you have and making the best of it!

Peggy! I love knitted and crocheted blankets! Your baby gift recipients will love you. :)

Re: A Father For Her Triplets (2:15pm August 5, 2013):

I hear you, Sheila! The trick is never give up. Keep looking for that path.

Re: A Father For Her Triplets (2:15pm August 5, 2013):

Colleen, I trained today and told my trainer that story and she laughed. She said some day she would show me the pix of her before she began training! Now that's incentive

susan

Re: A Father For Her Triplets (2:14pm August 5, 2013):

Diana! It's fantastic that you challenge yourself that way! Sometimes it is a matter of doing what you are able to do.

Good for you!

Wilma, my friend had arthritis and I know how bad it can be!

Re: A Father For Her Triplets (11:35am August 5, 2013):

Sandy, my husband like the exercise bike for that reason!

Re: A Father For Her Triplets (10:44am August 5, 2013):

You're welcome, Nancy! I found a website called LoseIt.com. It's now helping me track calorie intake.

I'm hoping the site makes everything easier to manage!

Re: A Father For Her Triplets (10:43am August 5, 2013):

Susan, I was amazed at how easily I took to zumba. I had planned to do fifteen minutes the first week and add fifteen minutes every week until I got up to the hour...but I did the whole hour the first night. I'm not coordinated, hoping that I soon reacquire coordination, LOL, but I love it!

susan

Re: A Father For Her Triplets (10:42am August 5, 2013):

You're so right, Clare! It isn't good to be consistently putting on weight as I had been the past few years. I love the idea of taking care of myself as well as writing great books. :)

susan

Re: A Father For Her Triplets (10:41am August 5, 2013):

Betty! That's wonderful! Sometimes learning to relax can be as challenging as learning to be a hard worker!

susan

Re: A Father For Her Triplets (8:55am August 5, 2013):

Denise, Having a special needs child can be a real challenge. Our oldest has epilepsy.

Much luck and success finding a job. I'll keep my fingers and toes crossed for you!

susan

Re: A Father For Her Triplets (8:54am August 5, 2013):

Thank, you, Carletta!

I love writing the little things like teasers as much as books! :)

susan

Re: A Father For Her Triplets (7:52am August 5, 2013):

Annetta...I did that goal a few months ago and now have a very nice system set up where I do little things every day instead of putting things like laundry off to one day where I have so much to do I can't keep up! LOL

susan

Re: A Father For Her Triplets (7:50am August 5, 2013):

Laura...Good luck with the new job! Fingers crossed for you!

Re: A Father For Her Triplets (7:50am August 5, 2013):

I'm sorry I can't read comment #1. There is a book ad smack dab on top of it! LOL

Re: The Billionaire's Baby SOS (3:47pm February 1, 2013):

Lynn, I love the Nora Roberts "family" books. I still re-read the MacGregors every few years!

susan

Re: The Billionaire's Baby SOS (11:28am February 1, 2013):

Okay...I think I'm going to have to write the "big family" series! I come from a family of 11 kids so I have the experience and know-how!

Re: The Billionaire's Baby SOS (8:01am February 1, 2013):

Marjorie

I have the first book in that series (I think!). Can't wait to read it!

susan

Re: The Billionaire's Baby SOS (8:00am February 1, 2013):

Michelle! Six kids! I'll bet your dinnertimes are fun!

susan

Re: Fever (12:41pm January 25, 2012):

Great advice! Cindy, you have always been one of my favorite suspense authors!

Joan, congrats to you!

Re: Murder In Plain Sight (5:19pm December 18, 2010):

Marty! That sounds like a fabulous book! I'm putting it on my continually growing shopping list.

I think you are right about the appeal of the books having something to do with a longing for a simpler life. Lord knows, this past week with all the hustle and bustle of Christmas prep, I've longed for a simpler life!

Re: Tempting a Proper Lady (2:45pm June 23, 2010):

I absolutely agree about romance novels making us remember why we fell in love with our own hero!

I find myself always attributing the hero's good characteristics to my husband and thinking, Ah, this is why I love him!

But I also read romance because I think we come up with some of the most creative stories! Seriously. Our range goes from historical to futuristic! We have everyday people and vampires. We have books with kids and books with only heroes and heroines.

We are some of the smartest writers around!

Hey, Verizon is back! Woo-Hoo!

Re: Maid for the Millionaire (3:07pm April 21, 2010):

I should mention that I'm having trouble with verizon's internet today! That's why my answrs are so scattered.

sorry about that!

Re: Maid for the Millionaire (3:07pm April 21, 2010):

Robin, Liz and Ellie are two of the most "real" characters I've ever created. That was why I had to dig really deep to come up with heroes who deserved them!

I also like to read about that kind of character.

susan

Re: Maid for the Millionaire (3:05pm April 21, 2010):

Deb, I know your days are pretty busy too since you have a full-time job and also write!

You're an inspiration to me!

susan

Re: Maid for the Millionaire (3:05pm April 21, 2010):

Sara! I laughed! Are you an April baby too?

My b-day did become a holiday of a sort. It's earth day!

Maybe I can be mother nature?

susan

Re: Maid for the Millionaire (3:04pm April 21, 2010):

Lisa, I've been doing the same thing with my upcoming milestone anniversary! It's a year or two away and I'm planning! LOL

I'm so thrilled that you've read and loved some of my books. Thank you for saying that!

Kids and babies do make them funnier and more heartwarming for me.

susan

Re: Maid for the Millionaire (2:18pm April 21, 2010):

Karin

I think that's the fun of reading! Getting into the lives of the characters.

I think that's why historicals are so popular! Lots of us would have loved to have lived way back then!

susan

Re: Maid for the Millionaire (7:22am April 21, 2010):

Interestingly, with the overseas flights cancelled over the weekend Dulles airport was really hopping!

I was two hours early for my flight so I got some great people watching in.

But my husband also believes I have good feelings for the airport because the only times I go to the airport are when I'm off to conferences or vacations. Both of which are tons of fun!

susan

Re: Maid for the Millionaire (7:20am April 21, 2010):

Thanks, Cindy!

susan

Re: Maid for the Millionaire (7:19am April 21, 2010):

Oh Patricia! Your post was so true. It's the people who forget to celebrate milestones who burn out.

susan

Re: Maid for the Millionaire (7:18am April 21, 2010):

Rosemary!

I make myself tired sometimes! LOL

But I have been truly blessed in my career.

I never take it for granted.

I think you'll like this summer's two releases. Thanks for the good wishes.

Re: Maid for the Millionaire (7:17am April 21, 2010):

Leni

I'm one of those people who is naturally positive. It took me decades to realize others werent' so lucky!

So I appreciate it! LOL I never take it for granted that I can see the sunny side of the street.
